The title of the message and your latest questions talks about unicode 
"Unicode", but in your original text you talk about "non-ASCII". Did you 
mean "non-ANSI"?

No FPC tools contain any platform-specific file handling, nor do they 
change any of the Default.*CodePage settings. They all use either 
ansistrings or shortstrings.
