Bypassing the  patch commands enabled it to succeed.

The earlier success was on an x86_64  system and I am trying it now on a
32bit i686 system. The fpc-2.6.4.i386-linux.7z doesn't contain the ppc386
executable. It is actually a symlink to an executable in
/home/delluser/fpctest/fpc-2.6.4/lib/fpc/2.6.4/ppc386. I replaced the whole
package with an existing fpc 2.6.4 on my system before it was able to
proceed. There are still some failures but I am looking into it.
