I know next to nothing about target embedded or ARM, but the original
poster seems to have asked for support of FreeBSD on ARM (which is indeed
not available in FPC at the moment as far as I can see, although I would
guess that the existing support for Darwin on ARM together with the
existing support of FreeBSD on i386 and x86_64 might be a good starting
point). Was your suggestion meant just as the first step on the way
towards adding support for this target on ARM (would the ARM
cross-compiler not having even a start for the requested target really
help him in this case?)? Or have I missed something?
