Well I looked at the download page:
and since my laptop has an Intel CPU I chose the one that said

But now I see that further down there is a section AMD64/x86_64, which
I did not use since it said AMD. But apparently that is the one for 64
bit. Sigh!
So how do I get rid of the erroneous fpc? I have no idea at all what
the install.sh script did so I can revert it....
Is there an uninstall way? Here is where apt-get would have been good
since it has an uninstall function.

But, should not the 32 bit compiler work also in my Linux Mint 17
machine? Even though it has an Intel 64 bit CPU...
