Huh, it is already one week (7 days) that I repeat it on each answer.

Yes but here it is different. Did you see that they do not want that I

Sincerely, if it was for one of my project, I never will fight and accept to
be insulted in each of their answer, this more than a week.

But here it is about the honor of fpc who was accused to produce bad code.

Yep or prove that a gcc or clang or llvm compiler that use ld +
--gc-sections produce binary not usable in multi-arch.

Thanks Graeme, I was beginning to think that I was in a nightmare without


Many thanks ;-)
