New version of fpcmake generates a new version of Makefiles, which generate 
package info.

fpcmake is now also used the generate packaging info if the package you are 
zipping. Is *doesn't* generate a makefile, it generates a Package.fpc

OK, I'll look what will be faster, stripping the pachagi info from the 
makefiles or building a new compiler which has (if I understood it well) 
separate Package.fpc files so you don't need the sources.

Nope, you have a new one, it tries to read rtl dependencies.
