As far as I know, fpGUI has a working fpmake for quite some time. I
even added some usage documentation of fpmake usage too (seeing that I
seem to use non-standard paths). I was just waiting on you guys to
give me the go-ahead on publishing to the server and what is required
from my side. :)

Just tried the 'fpmake archive' command. It failed because fpmake is
hard-coded to look for fpmake.pp when the standard pascal extension is
.pas.   So the FPMakePPFile constant needs to be tweaked a bit.  My
fpmake file is fpmake.pas, not fpmake.pp

Why does FPC still use .pp anyway? That's from FPC pre v1 days (as far
as I remember, from Florian's history lesson).
