Create a symlink from /usr/local/bin/ppc386 to /usr/local/lib/fpc/2.7.1/ppc386 (or ppcx64 in case you're on x86-64). "fpc" searches for a compiler binary in the same directory as where its own binary is located. "make install" does not create/overwrite ppcXXX, because that changes the default compiler (which is a separate step from installing a new version in parallel with another version).
