Those "odd reasons" have fairly simple rationale in fact, but I'll skip
that part and focus the primary goal - the easy solution is installing
fpc-3.0.2.i386-win32.exe from the same location which you used for getting
the cross-comiler mentioned above. Or wait a few days and install the new
3.0.4 version right away. ;-)
