[fpc-devel] Problems building on i386-win32

I figured it was something like that.  I'm not sure which installer put 
it there, or if moving it to the System32 directory will cause something 
to catastrophically fail!

Given that it seems to just silently ignore the issue of the DLL doesn't 
exist, would a warning be better for an invalid DLL or should it remain 
an error?
