It is getting better almost every day.

Attached patch allows you to specify the compiler executable and sets
the default path to the fpc default on win32. I can compile simple
programs now.

Problem was, that ExtractFilePath lets the directory name end with a \
and FileExists returns false. Worked on linux though.

Shouldn't we use dirsel dialog (recently introduced for find in files)
for selecting the directories? You can't select a folder in an open file
dialog on windows, I think.
