Yesno. On *nix a symlink should be made from the bin directory to the
lib/<version>/ppc<arch> binary.

If you have multiple versions, the default one gets the symlink above, the
rest get them with version number attached (e.g. ppc386-3.0 ->

Such versioned ones can be selected  with fpc -V3.0 <file to compile>
