Re: New package: fpc-2.0.0

Hi Jens,

No problem. I'm not always that fast either.

Now it's seems to be fixed. I've overrided _libdir, and someone else
tested it for me on FC4-test3 on an AMD-64

I've changed the fpc.spec so that it now includes a doc and a src-
subpackage. The doc-package contains the documentation in .pdf format
and the examples. The src-package contains the source of the compiler
itself. Some editors/IDE's for freepascal need those sources.

I don't know if you like this approach. One problem is that the packages
are build with an architecture, while they should be 'noarch'

It's possible to do a simple 'make all', but that's slower, you can't
strip the debuginfo, and the libraries aren't ready for smartlinking.

I have two versions now, one without the -doc and -src packages:

and the one with those packages:
