FPC developement is done by it's community and everybody is free to do 
what he wants as long as it's "compatible" with the other work done on 
FPC. So even if somebody wants to do a C64 cross compiler we won't stop 
him ;)

There are two "official" IDEs: fp and lazarus. fp is a text mode/console 
IDE while lazatus is an IDE for GUI systems.
