Runs both locally and remotely. I had to tinker with the -Fu in 
extrafpc.cfg to compile, so far I've only used 0.9.24 and haven't tried x86.

I'll put more time into this presently, but after what I've seen over 
the last few days I think getting LCL+fpgui complete would be an 
admirable endeavour since it looks as though otherwise we will be at the 
mercy of gtk1 being discontinued and gtk2 being hobbled by excessive 
overhead. It might even be a good default widget set, with 
gtk2/Qt/Carbon etc. being selected where the target distro and window 
manager are known.
