Bug#863809: fpc: Please add manpage for ppcmipsel command

Source: fpc
Version: 3.0.0+dfsg-11
Severity: normal
Tags: patch
User: debian-mips@lists.debian.org
Usertags: mips


Since building src:fpc successfully requires a manpage for the native
ppc$CPU binary, we need to add one for ppcmipsel as well since the package
source is currently not shipping one.

I have just created a copy of the corresponding patch for arm64 to add
a manpage (add_arm64_manpage.patch) and reg-replaced all occurrences
of "ppca64" with "ppcmipsel".

Please include the patch with the next upload. With the changes from
#863807 [1] and #863808 [2], fpc can be built on the buildds for mips
without any problems, provided that at least version 3.0.2 is used.
