FPC is a unix command line application. Those belong under /usr/local/  
(it's the reason of existence for that hierarchy). Putting it under / 
Developer would not make it any easier to use, since /Developer (or / 
Developer/fpc/usr/bin or so) is not in the default command line path  
either, and there is not a single double-clickable application in the  
Mac OS X FPC distribution (well, none that does anything useful when  
you execute it like that anyway).
