Are there known issues with 1.0.6 and it's finding the configuration
file?  Does it matter whether I compile using the 'fpc' or 'ppc386'
command (they differ on my system):

[amead at alan ian]$ more ~amead/fpc.cfg
[amead at alan ian]$ ls -l `which ppc386`
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           25 May 17 08:49
/usr/bin/ppc386 -> /usr/lib/fpc/1.0.6/ppc386*
[amead at alan ian]$ ls -l `which fpc`
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        78020 May 23  2002 /usr/bin/fpc*
[amead at alan ian]$ ls -l /usr/lib/fpc/1.0.6/ppc386
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root       897844 May 23  2002
[amead at alan ian]$ rpm -qf /usr/bin/fpc
[amead at alan ian]$ rpm -qf /usr/lib/fpc/1.0.6/ppc386

I ask because my programs are not automatically being compiled with
the desired options '-Cr -Co -gl'.  I can enable range checking in
the source file with {$R+}, is there a similar solution for -gl?


A Congressman was once asked about his attitude toward whiskey.  "If you mean the demon drink that poisons the mind, pollutes the body, desecrates family life, and inflames sinners, then I'm against it. "

"But if you mean the elixir of Christmas cheer, the shield against winter chill, the taxable potion that puts needed funds into public coffers to comfort little crippled children, then I'm for it."
"This is my position, and I will not compromise."
