Either the directories are not there, there is another config or this a compiler bug.
Plz try to manually add the path:
ppc386 -vt '-Fu/usr/local/lib/fpc/1.0.6/units/$target/*' bogus

If there is now the gtk dir, then your config is buggy or you have a double config.
If not, then you should double check, that the path is correct.

Weird thing. If we find the solution we should add this to the FAQ.
