I am interested in getting a release version of FPC running on my RPi2
with Raspbian Jessie. I have been away so I am a few days late with my
Was your approach this:

1) Install a version 2.6.4 FPC compiler on the Pi.

2) Check out release tag sources using

3) Use the 2.6.4 compiler to build 3.0.0

4) Check out the sources again and use the newly made compiler to
build it.

Is there a package available for Debian Jessie on Raspberry Pi2 such
that one does not have to build the compiler at all?
Like getting it via apt:
sudo apt-get install freepascal
