Sorry to but in, but I read this post and followed the link to the binutils
problem you mentioned in your reply.
Is it possible the error message, "Can't call the linker,..." is the result
of a bad/missing symlink and not the problem in binutils?

I have Ubuntu 9.04 desktop now but haven't installed FPC as yet.
