Hi Sven - thanks for the quick check.  I'm out of the house currently so 
I can't try it out immediately, but I'll try it out later this evening.  
By the way, both my source and target are aarch64-linux (I'm using the 
prototype aarch64 build of the Raspberry Pi OS, athough I have an SD 
card with the standard 32-bit Arm Raspian as well).

In regards to it not supporting inline assembly, it might only be 
applicable to FPC 3.2.x, as I tried to write some customised assembly 
language but was getting unrecognised opcode errors for instructions 
that definitely exist (like LDR).
