Recently, I collected some hints about working with development 
compilers in the FPC-Wiki:

I plan to run FPC natively on my Zaurus (it already shows the help pages 
and is able to compile hello world :)), a 200 MHz CPU with 48 MB RAM and 
a 1 GB flash card is the same as I'd 5-6 years ago on my desktop :)

Of course, you need fpc and cross GNU binutils for your host system.
