Because we don't use the linker's "-T" option (the one the linker  
warning refers to), the link.res should be added to the built-in  
linker script of your system rather than replace it. This built-in  
linker script should already contain the default library paths. Run  
"ld -m elf_i386 --verbose" to see this built-in linker script. The  
default directories are listed via SEARCH_DIR() near the top.

I don't know what could have changed in FPC to cause your observed  
change. Did you perhaps also regenerate your fpc.cfg configuration  
file when updating? Maybe something changed in that regard.
