Yes, that is why fpcup does not automatically download any .so/.a files.
Users can download whatever libraries they want. fpcup will check for a
couple of filenames to see if attempting the cross compile makes sense
and go. It does not force a certain library version.

The crossfpc package is a nice way to get a lot of cross compiling
binutils in one go... having some libs is a bonus.

NB: currently working on modifying fpc.cfg for cross compilation. Had
forgotten about that :)
