Thanks for guiding me in the right direction. What actually happened is 
that I created a native powerpc compiler (because I had set 
crossinstall=1 on the make all command) and used that native compiler to 
create my units. Now I am using the ppcrossppc (renamed to ppcppc) and 
things are working.

That is not a problem, because I only provide lcl and related compiled 
units. This should be enough for people who have the right libraries to 
cross compile their applications. It does mean of course, I cannot test it.
