Building our own here is nothing more that use a stable FPC compiler and add
the patches which are not in it. Like the patches Mattias is missing, I've
the idea that the fix for #1888 isn't included as well. That one is a really
pain if you've to work around it.
Something about #1888
  Symptoms are compile and everything seems to work OK, change
  just a bit so some unit gets recompiled or things are linked
  differently -> Form streaming produces an AV, change something
  else and it works probably. One can work around this by
  publishing most used properties (left, top, height, width,
  caption etc) again in a derived form class.

If in the final FPC 1.0.6 those patches are missing, then I vote for using a
stable 1.0.7
