> The weird thing is that the linker only looks at /lib and /usr/lib, but not
/usr/lib32, which should be the location of 32-bit libraries on 64-bit
system. Using -Cn, I can see that link.res doesn't contain path to
/usr/lib32, and manually changing it makes the linking success.

OK, this one can be solved by explicitly stating /usr/lib32 via -Fl in
fpc.cfg (but even then the linker script still adds /lib and /usr/lib to the
SEARCH_DIR). The actual problem that makes the linking fail is the two


This is because /lib is a symlink to /usr/lib in 64-bit systems. Changing
the symlink to /usr/lib32 makes the linking works, but obviously not an
elegant solution.
