Why don't you simply use the distribution independent release of 3.0.4?
E.g. from here:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/freepascal/files/Linux/3.0.4 (you're
looking for fpc-3.0.4.i386-linux.tar). You can install it in any location
you want and only need to setup PATH accordingly afterwards (I do the same
on my Linux systems for the releases).
