Nothing difficult in running fpcup ;)
Regardlessly, have a look at the pages I linked to for the nightly download.

If the fixes branch breaks it needs to be... fixed.
Because only fixes, no new functionality, are backported to FPC fixes
after having been tested for a while in FPC trunk, that shouldn't happen
very much.

Apart from that I don't really understand. Are you saying you want to
maintain your own FPC distribution that contains fixes so people can use
it to compile your software?

Sounds like a lot of work.
