i've managed to (mostly) work out the problems i had building latest 
cvs. make cycle runs nicely, make all completes w/o crashing, but when i 
attempt a "make install" the following happens ...

c:/pp/bin/win32/cp.exe -rfp tests/* /pp/examples/fcl
cp.exe: cannot remove old link to `/pp/examples/fcl/Makefile': 
Permission denied

make[3]: *** [fpc_exampleinstall] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `C:/CVS/fpc/fcl/db'
make[2]: *** [db_exampleinstall] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `C:/CVS/fpc/fcl'
make[1]: *** [fcl_distinstall] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `C:/CVS/fpc'
make: *** [install] Error 2

however, after this fails i can type ppc386 -i from anywhere and i get 
the following which leads me to believe that everything went ok ...

Free Pascal Compiler version 1.9.2

Compiler Date  : 2004/01/04

not really sure that these errors are something i need to be concerned 
with, but i wouldn't think an error that causes the install process to 
terminate is something i should ignore ... :)
