Currently the best examples seem to be the various fpmake.pp files in 
$fpcdir/packages/PACKAGENAME/ (because they are in production use ;) ).

Not quite. fppkg is a program to handle the installation and upgrading 
of packages (this includes compiling and then running the fpmake.pp file 
as well). So fpmake itself is basically the make command.

I can't help you with your remaining problem though as I'm not that 
deeply into fpmake yet.
