[fpc-pascal] Compile fpc twice or only once during install?

When I install FPC/Lazarus on new Linux systems I use a script I wrote
several years ago. It is cofigured for the actual versions to install
but otherwise it is self-contained.

What it does concerning fpc is:
- Get the tagged version of the sources from svn (typically 3.0.4)
- Get the seed compiler 3.0.0, which I have stored on my website
- Build all using the seed compiler
- Install sources etc.

Now I wonder if I should add a second "make all" after pointing to the
newly built 3.0.4 such that the final result is fpc 3.0.4 built from
sources compiled by itself?

Or is this superfluous?
