the file from Florian didn't work. But i looked around in the mailing 
lists and now i try to crosscompile a new version for
the openmoko device. 

I crosscompiled binutils for "arm4tl-unknown-linux".
and then i tried to cross compile the FPC (2.3.x) with this command:

make all OS_TARGET=linux CPU_TARGET=arm 
OPT="-dFPC_ARMEL -O-" FPC=/usr/bin/ppc386

Worked fine.
On the device the new ppcarm didn't say "Illegal Instruction" any more.
So far so good. ... But now it didn't say anything at all.
I did a "echo $?" after "./ppcarm -h" and it returns 216


if i try to compile the 2.2.2 sources i get an error:

i_linux.pas(594,11) Error: Identifier not found "abi_eabi"
i_linux.pas(594,11) Error: Illegal expression

any ideas?
I also tried to compile with  -dFPC_ABI_EABI

thx, and best regards
