Yes, then it should not matter.

That is not supported. Only official full install are supported. The reason is because otherwise you run into problems like the ones you are having.

The question was whether you have an "fpc" binary in your path (i.e., a program literally called "fpc"). If not, you have to explicitly specify the compiler to use via FPC=/full/path/to/ppc386 (or ppcx64, or ppcppc, etc depending on what your host platform is).

But again: only full official FPC installs are supported. If you keep getting problems, or ever have problems again in the future, please first install an official FPC release and try again. If you absolutely insist on not doing that (please do it anyway), at the very least mention that in every request for help when something doesn't work.
