FPC always supports all OSes for a particular target cpu. So a Linux/ 
i386 compiler supports generating code for Darwin/i386 just as well as  
for netwlibc/i386.

But targeting Darwin/i386 is not easy since the GNU binutils don't  
support it, so you have to use Apple's cctools/ld64 projects and they  
don't trivially build on non-Mac OS X hosts. You also need a valid Mac  
OS X license as you need the Mac OS X libraries on your Linux system  
to be able to link.

The -T options are just listed in a text file, which happens to be not  
kept very much up-to-date at all times.
