I'm on broadband, so I do a cvs update (now I'll always add -d, but that
doesn't solve the problem). I'm running fpc 1.0.6 on Mandrake 8.2. If I
compile it in a console (ie. not in an gnome terminal), it fails to
compile, but doesn't crash out X. It fails when trying to compile
graphicsmath.pp which is pulled in by allunits.pp.

Is it necessary to have 1.0.7 now ? If it is should the makefile stop me
from using 1.0.6 ?

Let me know if you want any verbosity flags turned on if you want me to
look into it.

 I no longer have 1.0.6 to test on, so it could be a
