I think that what Sven meant is that fpc's Windows installers include binutils,
while this is not true for other platforms: that is, you need to have ld on your
system if you want to use it as a linker, fpc does not provide it.

Same as for windres: if you need it, usually you can install it from mingw's
binutils. In fedora I can install it from mingw32-binutils (or mingw64-binutils).
I see that a package with the same name also exists in FreeBSD, so I assume it
will contain windres as well.
