FPC and the files it generates don't use any userland libraries, so in
general it is independant of 4.9<>5.2 until one starts to link in userland

Only the FPC patched startupcode must be updated for 5.2 I think, because an
ELF identifier was edit, at least for basic operation to avoid COMPAT_4.  A
simple script could do this.


should fix that, but I couldn't test this on a short notice. 

that's why backing up $PREFIX/lib/fpc/1.9.2/units/freebsd/rtl/cprt0.o could
	be wise.

I postponed adding such changes to the port in anticipation of the next
beta, 1.9.4, but because x86_64 and Mac OS X support is being merged in,
this is delayed. (x86_64 support for linux only atm, but as soon as that is
halfwhat stable I'll start a FreeBSD port too, expect to do that rather
