The command I used inside the downloaded 3.0.2 source dir
/home/pi/dev/fpc/3.0.2 was:

make all OPT=-dFPC_ARMHF

This threw the error message.

Changed to this and it worked:

make all FPC=/home/pi/dev/fpc/ppcarm OPT=-dFPC_ARMHF

The /home/pi/dev/fpc/ppcarm is a 3.0.0 version.

The one on path is:

which ppcarm

Checked the version (is there a command switch to just print the

Free Pascal Compiler version 3.0.2rc1 [2017/01/09] for arm

So it seems like I used an RC version of the 3.0.2 fpc to build 3.0.2
release, that is probably in error. But the error message did not say
I should use 3.0.0, instead it said I should use 2.6.4...
