Is the wiki page falsely claiming that all you have to do to compile
for Linux is to set the target to Linux? They say that the compiler is
ready for all targets using the same CPU...

I have looked in my installation directory of Lazarus 1.8.4 which was
installed from the binary installer. There is only a single system.ppu
there and it is in this dir:
Should there not be subdirectories for Linux too?
Or how are you supposed to get these?
