An FPC release can always be built by the previously released FPC 
version, and FPC trunk can always be built by the current release.

While very old FPC versions could be compiled by Turbo Pascal (and at 
some point also by Delphi, I think), current FPC versions can only be 
compiled by FPC itself.
