Ubuntu is not supported either. The core Linux distribution is the .tar.gz
distribution agnostic one, the distribution specific building is 3rd party
(though FPC core does Redhat RPM and Debian .deb), but only when downloaded
from the actual FPC site.

if you obtain FPC or Lazarus packages elsewhere, you need to ask that
"elsewhere" for packaging related support.

You can always try, but that doesn't make it the most logical place to ask.

Mint specific packaging list or forum, unrelated to FPC.

It helps if you have the right hole in the first place, otherwise the whole
process is futile.
