That's correct. That's why it should be provided on the command-line.
fpcmkcfg only shows the values of all defined macro's. For example, try
'fpcmkcfg -d foo=jojo -m'.
The built-in macro's are there because they need some sort of logic.
Like the BUILDDATE and BUILDTIME which will contain the current
date/time. FPCTARGET the processor fpcmkcfg is compiled for etc.
