If you really need that, despite you said it's not a major issue, then
you should consider other solutions. FPC is simply not for the
purpose. FPC is about "write once compile anywhere" since FPC
generates native code for each platform. Actually, with a bit of
effort, you could make a build machine that would (cross)-compile your
source code to any platforms by a single command.

So far, FPC is quite portable to me. When you write your code right,
targeting another platform is simply recompile the code. Since FPC is
fast, doing that requires just a few seconds, or minutes is the
application is ultra huge. To me, it's not an "extra" work. Besides,
when you're working on server side, it should be less platform you
need to support compare to if you're working on client side.

Consider Delphi Prism if you do like pascal language. ;)
