> There's a prompt in the freepascal installer that asks for the prefix. Your
users should be capable of that?

As explained in previous post, the goal is to not touch the system.
If you use the fpc installer, even if you install it in the user's home
directory, the installer will create a fpc.cfg in /etc and that needs root

Of course users can do that but the goal of that patch is to have a compiler
totally out-of-the-box, that even dont need to configure or set anything.

Sorry but not all users are gurus.
And sorry also if it dont follow the rules of the good old boy way.
