By default the compiler also looks in ~/.fpc.cfg on *nix systems (and 
then tries /etc/fpc.cfg). So if you have your installation script 
automatically create the correct configuration file using fpcmkcfg 
(distributed with FPC, see $fpcdir/utils/fpcmkcfg) setting up the 
correct paths then your user will be good to go (after all this is what 
FPC's installation script does as well).
