Yes. First that ppc gets built with the "other FPC" installed. Or you can
specify a startup compiler explicitly with FPC= argument to the make. It
doesn't even need the rtl or anything, just the "ppcXXX" native compiler.

During the first round it builds this new native compiler + rtl which will
be used to bootstrap the actual crosscompiler then.
