It's not broken.

As jonas said, make install is used a lot to install a new version, 
but that doesn't mean you want to make it the default version.

Do not forget that using makefiles implies that you already 
have a working version.

But maybe we can add a

make distinstall

target (target name debatable) on the FPC root directory that calls

make -C compiler installsymlink

which would then proceed to do what you want on unix systems. 
If the make info or help mentions this, it should be OK.
