Ok. I'll try to get 2.0.0 working, but i'll certainly need some guidance at
the beginning.

I downloaded the release_2_0_0 from svn , and i am now trying to
compile rtl using the fpc 1.0.10  .

1. cd rtl/netbsd
2. gmake

/usr/local/bin/ppc386 -dUNIX -Fi../inc -Fi../i386 -Fi../unix -Fi../bsd
-Fi../bsd/i386 -Fi../netbsd/i386 -FE. -FU../../rtl/units/i386-netbsd
-di386 ../bsd/system.pp
Compiling ../bsd/system.pp
system.pp(24,21) Error: Illegal unit name: SYSBSD
system.pp(24,21) Warning: Compiling the system unit requires the -Us switch

3. I've modified in bsd/system.pp  the line :
  Unit {$ifdef VER1_0}SysBSD{$else}System{$endif};
to :
  Unit System;

  Is this correct ?

  Then I ran ppc386 manually (and added the -Us switch)  :

/usr/local/bin/ppc386 -dUNIX -Fi../inc -Fi../i386 -Fi../unix -Fi../bsd
-Fi../bsd/i386 -Fi../netbsd/i386 -FE. -FU../../rtl/units/i386-netbsd
-di386 -Us ../bsd/system.pp

4. Ran gmake again  ,  but when building the baseunix unit it is missing some

I have noticed that in freebsd/Makefile these files are not referred .

This is the progress so far.
