Now trying to compile the old Delphi sources in FPC/Lazarus and it
stops in a common file on this type of construct:

  {$IF CompilerVersion >= 26} {Delphi XE5..}
    Fmt := TFormatSettings.Create;

The error message is:
IniFileFuncs.pas(55,7) Error: Incompatible types: got "AnsiString"
expected "Int64"
IniFileFuncs.pas(55,7) Error: Compile time expression: Wanted Boolean
but got <erroneous type> at IF or ELSEIF

I guess this might be a FPC difference to Delphi...
How can I make FPC understand that this is a conditional it shall just
