it depends what you compile it for.  i'd guess that the pre-compiled
one is for fpu.  you can compile fpc for arm with -CfSOFT if you need
a soft float one.  there are some bugs at the moment for soft float
(see mantis).

this depends what you need.  i'd recommend that you use the toolchain
supplied by the operating system that you use on your arm device.
that will be the toolchain they use to compile all the packages, so
you can be sure that your program will be compatible with the
libraries on your arm device.

debian supplies a toolchain (afaik) and on slugos you'll have to use
the "master make file" to download and build it from source.

dan kegel's crosstool is also a possibility.
