While "make cycle" is useful as a first test, for a complete testsuite  
run you also need the packages. So before running the testsuite, run a  
"make all" in the top level FPC directory (possibly preceded by an "rm  
build*" in case make says that nothing needs to be done for "all").

Also, if you do this regularly and have a multicore, you can speed up  
things significantly by using (replace "x" with the number of cores  
you have, or the number of cores+1 if you have a slow hard drive or  
are performing a cold build)
a) for the fpc make all: make all -j x FPMAKEOPT="-T x"
b) for the testsuite: make full TEST_OPT="-O2" -j x

(the testsuite "full" target is equivalent to "clean all digest", but  
written in a way that makes all dependencies explicit so that parallel  
building works correctly)
