I found them, it was fp.ini, fp.cfg and fp.dsk in the current directory.
I didn't notice them because I was doing some experiments in my home dir
and i did it from the console, so I didn't see them amongst all my other
files there at a glance.

It suddenly didn't display any compiler error messages anymore and I
read somewhere that this might be a messed up configuration, so I was
searching for a global configuration file. Simply deleting the above
mentioned files solved the problem.
