An alternative would be for instantfpc to create a temporary unit containing this constant, and inject it in the main program via the -Fa parameter. I don't know whether moving an instantfpc-based script also invalidates the cached compiled copy though (but I guess it does, because otherwise you wouldn't be able have two scripts with the same name in different locations).
