This is not the case;  the problem is that no-one of the core developers has
BeOS installed; it's hard to work on a BeOS port then.

Currently carl is also working on a m68k port; The compiler and the IDE run
on a m68k-linux box; I suspect that when that is finished, the POSIX (and hence
BeOS) port will be continued.

Many members of the core team have day-time jobs; FPC is worked on whenever possible,
so patience please...
