That happens in the directory of a built but not yet installed cross
compiler. The build command following those instructions:
gmake clean buildbase installbase CROSSINSTALL=1 CROSSOPT="-XParm-elf-"
OS_TARGET=embedded CPU_TARGET=arm SUBARCH=armv7m PREFIX=../../fpc-arm
IIRC. But actually the path from the PREFIX does not exist. Sth. to
investigate or redo for me.

That solution isnt't doable, that would require a compiler for X86_64

Beautiful, may take a while to get there, but very handy. :)
