This might be, because you compiled it without a libgdb which in turn is 
the one who links dynamically to libc. Most FPC applications (if they 
don't use threads or a WideString manager) don't require libc and thus 
don't need to link to it (which AFAIK is also the case for the IDE if it 
doesn't link to libgdb).
