Typo, I meant "wanting to do this".

Nowhere, but there is documentation on how to (cross-)compile FPC: http://www.stack.nl/~marcov/buildfaq.pdf

See also the messages titled "How hard is it to port FPC to AIX" on http://lists.freepascal.org/lists/fpc-devel/2008-September/thread.html 
  (classified under the wrong thread, because they were posted  
starting with a rely to another thread).

I don't know of any documentation on how to build FPC for ARMEL with  
eabi, and as I said support for it is very shaky (it doesn't work  
properly for Linux yet either, afaik) so it will probably still  
require code generator work as well.
