fpextres.ppu is installed by default on darwin.
Maybe you didn't setup codetools for your fpc units. Because of the
vast amount of fpc units, codetools needs to scan them once. There is a
simple init function, that uses the common environment variables PP,
FPCDIR and PATH to find the fpc executable and the fpc sources. It
creates a map ppu file to unit source and stores the result in the
ConfigFilename. So next time it can quickly read it.


If you need more control, look into the SimpleInit function.

Keep in mind that most codetools are not threadsafe.
