[fpc-pascal] Using emulation for native compilation

Over the last few days I've put a lot of time into setting up up a 
fairly fast system with various CPU emulators- mostly Qemu but also a 
couple of others- and getting compilation times etc. from them. It might 
interest anybody who is weighing up the attractiveness of native vs 
cross compilation.


My major motivation was entirely practical: I wanted a Windows 
development system a bit more convenient than relying on removable 
caddies, and I needed to recycle my development ARM system and didn't 
have a convenient "real" replacement. Other architectures such as MIPS 
were incidental...
