The problem is that the xml stuff must be built before you can run  
the testsuite with fpcunit tests included (since the fpcunit package  
depends on the xml stuff). This means that before you can start  
running the testsuite, your compiler has to be stable and complete  
enough to compile packages and fcl. That's not reasonable.
