Thank you for the tutorial, it helped me a lot. It was exciting to see the 
compiler building process on the screen :-) So now I have a 1.9.1 for i386 
I have encountered a problem when doing a "make all" from the cvs tree 
(checked out yesterday) that maybe is worth mentioning:
when compiling pipes.pp i've got an  error in pipes.inc 
got longint expected boolean

{$ifdef ver1_0}

Function CreatePipeHandles (Var Inhandle,OutHandle : Longint) : Boolean;

  Result := AssignPipe (Inhandle,OutHandle);

  $Log: pipes.inc,v $
  Revision 1.5  2002/09/07 15:15:29  peter
    * old logs removed and tabs fixed


I did a simple typecast:
Result := Boolean(AssignPipe (Inhandle,OutHandle));
and all went well in the next "make all"

Hope I didn't broke something else with this typecast.

Thank you again for all the help. Hope to be able to make up some day with a 
humble contribution to the project. :-) 
Btw I was thinking about beginning a port of the JUnit testing framework to 
Free Pascal, as I'm no longer feeling safe without a unit testing net when 
programming. Could it be interesting? Or it's been already done?

Ciao, Dean
