Good point. In addition to the Debian packages I mentioned earlier there 
is a complete single file tar-ball here for x86_64


link is Download From Mirror 
<http://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/fpc/download/> under 
'Package Actions' on the right.

Just open with Archive Manager (File Roller or whatever) and extract the 
/usr and /etc trees. su/sudo will be needed to write to /etc & /usr. 
Much the same as installing from a zip file in Windows.
