You'll need to copy the complete fpcsrc folder. And I would use the two
commands separately. 'make all OS_TARGET=win32 CPU_TARGET=i386' and
'make crossinstall OS_TARGET=win32 CPU_TARGET=i386'

But it could be that you'll encounter problems with the 10-bit floating
point support.

In that case you can simply download a bootstrap compiler for win32
(ftp://ftp.freepascal.org/fpc/dist/2.6.2/bootstrap/) and do:

'make clean all PP=c:\path\to\bootstrap\compiler\ppc386.exe'

On win64 you can run 32 bit applications, after all, so
cross-compilation is not strictly necessary. Just install a 32 bit
