I think that it really does because there must be some interface
between the FPC system and the underlying operating system managing
the hardware.
It usually is, so therefore I chose between this newsgroup and the
lazarus one for my question.
On the Raspberry Pi forum they do not know about FPC in general so I
got no response there.

As example for Windows I needed to get some special plug-in to Delphi
to be able to access the Windows hardware and that was delphi
programming. Why should it be off-topic here?

And this is the only fpc list I can find that is carried by Gmane
