I checked out trunk (r63245) via subversion, which reported no errors.
I then changed into the subdirectory, and ran

make -B

The following is a cut and paste of the results.

So, I decided to try running an update, in case something had failed
to download, and I'd missed it. Again, cut and pasted.

So, nothing to update.

fpcupdeluxe at least seems to build correctly...

Oh, BTW, the fpc I have installed is 3.0.4. I am fairly sure, but not
absolutely certain, that this would have been from the .DEBs
downloaded from Sourceforge.
