Since the bug reporting system keeps rejecting my login, I'm posting
here about this bug.
I want to have per-project configuration files yet still let the global
one processed first. With the #INCLUDE preprocessor, I can load
hardcoded configuration files, but not if the pathname contains
variables like $FPCTARGET.
For example, with the a local configuration file containing solely
the compiler reports
'Fatal: Unable to open file C:\FPC\2.4.0\bin\i386-win32\fpc.cfg'.
Note the variable _is_ substituted in the error message.
Any suggestions or workarounds are welcome.
