Over the last ten years I've tried to compile FPC for 32-bit Linux 
SPARC, PPC and ARM on occasion. There's obviously plenty of people doing 
ARM now, is anybody still able to check PPC?

I'll try to get back to the point where I'm able to build SPARC for 
Linux and (possibly) Solaris so that there's up-to-date binaries 
available, but I'm afraid that I've got rather a lot of problems right 
now which severely impact the time I can spend on it.
