[fpc-pascal] Find out local IP adress

You could always exec ifconfig, then parce the output for the  
interfaces, and pull the ips from there.
I do this on OSX with a simple terminal script like this:
ifconfig|grep broadcast|awk '{print $2}';
This could easily be made to work on linux/bsd/fpc with very little  
Hope this helps.
