Thanks. Yes I wanted to get fpc (the compiler) installed from sources
rather than lazarus. Your advice somewhat got me there, but now when I
compile the source/units are not found.

cd /home/myusername
sudo apt-get install fpc
mkdir fpc
svn co http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/trunk lazarus
cd fpc
# now i'm at at /home/myusername/fpc/fpc
make all
make FPC=`pwd`/compiler/ppc386 -C compiler installsymlink INSTALL_PREFIX=
make install INSTALL_PREFIX=/home/myusername
cd /home/myusername

Then I created Hello.pas:

program Hello;


And then:

fpc Hello.pas
