[fpc-pascal].ppu and .o files

The .ppu are compiled units.  You probably want to keep them hanging
around, but it's not neccessary.  If you delete them, the compiler
simply needs to re-compile all the units each time you compile.  If
you leave them, I think it will only compile the changed units and
the main program. 

I think the .o files can be deleted.
