Define "standard". You don't have anything installed, so the system and user
PATH variables are still pristine?

I assume this means that you do the same as Reinier. Hardcode the pristine
environment (or better fix it with the %systemroot% env variable), and then
put the FPC dir in front of it.

That is indeed a good way, and is basically the same as not putting sh.exe
in the PATH that is passed to make.
