Just another short note:

Delphi recompiles units A,B and C the second time;
--> so with FPC you win 1 compile :-)

If you give Delphi the -M option (only make changed units) it recompiles
ONLY unit a the second time, which is apparently the behaviour you expect.

In any case, it is always dangerous to have circular unit dependencies,
And in my opinion you should re-think the unit structure in such case.
But that is only my personal opinion.
