FPC can do both, but syscalls are default because these binaries are more
portable across distributions (and versions) than glibc and thus easier to
deploy. (and recently, libc has been broken after the introduction of the
new syscalls. There is a release blocking bugentry for that in Mantis, so I
expect that to be solved soon).
