As an end user howvere I do not even know that such a thing like
BASEPATH can be set at all.
The only way to know is to study the sourcecode (fpccfg.inc).
IMO to should show all macro's it uses, even if it is empty: eg.:

I meant that LOCALFPPKGBASEPATH  would have made more sense to me.
LOCALBASEPATH to me suggests what BASEPATH seems to be...
(I really hop I make myself clear.)
