I've made a script file (attached) that iterates through the different subarchitectures
available for the AVR compiler, calls make and then moves the compiled units to a subdirectory.
I think the logic of this script should be moved to the existing rtl makefile so that all
subarchitectures for a target gets generated and sorted in one go.  Of course then the default
fpc.cfg ideally needs to be updated to reflect the subarch folder structure for ARM and AVR.

I'm putting this out there hoping that someone familiar with the topic and makefile syntax can
help with a patch for FPC.
