FreePascal Build Tips


Tips for building (making) freepascal.
Q: How to build only certain sections of FreePascal? For example I just want to build 
   the compiler, not the entire freepascal!

A: Just use "make RTL" or "make compiler" (and friends). 

     "make rtl" will just build the RTL.
  
     "make compiler" will just build the compiler.

     etc. etc.

Errors:

Cannot find -lgpm

  apt-get install gpm
  apt-get install libgpmg1-dev
(this used to be libgpm-dev or libgpm-devel or gpm-devel or gpm-dev).

Cannot find -lvga

  apt-get install svgalibg1-dev

Welcome to unix "package hell".
