Sorry to bother again, and thanks, Christo, it is a version that
contains fp. However, no program will compile as the error is:
Fatal: Can't find unit System
But when I look in fpc.cfg the path for units is correct:
# searchpath for units and other system dependent things
Well, my unit directory is /usr/lib64/fpc/2.0.0/units/x86_64-linux/....
but I don't know where the variable fpctarget is initialised, I assume
in fp but cant find it. I have tried to set the path directly (in
options) however with no effect.

Another problem is that Lazarus complains:
 fpc = 2.0.1-050923 is needed by lazarus-0.9.10-0.i386
 fpcsrc = 2.0.1-050923 is needed by lazarus-0.9.10-0.i386
and of course it's correct (fpc version is 2.0.0. and I haven't found
fpcsrc-2.0.0 ).
So my questions are:
1.	Where is fpctarget initialised ? (or how can nudge fpc to run at
least "helloworld")
2.	Which lazarus version is available for version 2.0.0-x86_64 (or is
there 2.0.1-050923-x86_64 version).
3.	Why do I need fpcsrc (I assume it's the source of fpc) to use
lazarus? (I didn't find it in wiki but maybe I didn't know where to
