not sure why make doesn't work... need to check you have all right stuff in
correct paths...eg see the fpc ftp site (ftp.freepascal.org/fpc
/source/fpc.zip for an example of the correct paths. It's probably fv that
is missing but might be other things too... 

fvision hasn't yet been integrated properly with fpc so won't/may not work,
so you need to use the fv source which isn't being distributed freely
because of Borland copyright problems...  

If you just want the latest go32v2 why not use the snapshots - you can
download them from ftp fpc /snapshot/go32v32/. Unless you really really need
to make your own this is the easiest solution.

Subject: [fpc-pascal]Compile the FPC compiler

I try to compile FPC from the CVS sources under Win98 (I know, but nobody is
For that I type : MAKE COMPILER GO32V2ZIP
All seems to work well, but after a certain moment, I can see some error
message like 'Cannot find SOMETHING.ppu' (replace SOMETHING by nearly what
unit you want)
At the end I have nothing in the temp directory where it seems the final
executables need to be.
I'm sure I have done something wrong! But what?

Auxiliary question: I Try to compile the CVS version of FVision, but I have
nothing exept an ugly non working correctly texte interface in graph mode...
How can I have something like the IDE?
