I found fpcmake.  I would have found it sooner if the message at the top of the
top Makefile had not capitalized the first four letters of its name.  Pascal is not
case sensitive, but unix "find" _is_.  The message uses "TitleDate"; if it were
changed to use "lowercase(TitleDate)", the message would be more accurate.

Are the makefiles in cvs kept up-to-date, or should users run fpcmake after
updating from cvs?

The "vI" comes from fpcmake; the attached simple patch fixes it.
