I suppose I'll have to do a regular manual install (fpcup cheats by
installing in the same tree as the svn sources which is not supported, I
know) and see what goes where.

I'd either have to
- rework fpcup so it exports the sources to a different dir which is IMO
overkill if you want to have a couple of fpc versions
- do something else. I'm now thinking of just symlinking from the arch
dir to the plain bin dir... but I think I'd better sleep over it (a bit
too tired of messing with compiler flags, build tests etc).
