Re: arm port plans for the squeeze cycle (fpc bootstrapping)

I looked at this in spring 2008.

>From http://wiki.debian.org/ArmEabiProblems#fpc

Free Pascal compiler, a.k.a. fp-compiler. Exists in sid for arm, i386,
amd64 and powerpc. Requires itself to compile itself and contains
cpu-specific code generators: the arm one may or may not work
unmodified on armel. Porting it means cross-compiling it, installing
the cross-compiled version and using that to build the package, as
well as possibly modifying its code generator for EABI.

An alternative is for dependent packages to move to (or also accept)
gpc, the GCC-based pascal compiler (wishlist bugs have been filed
where appropriate).
