I think that since you initially got approval to use the prebuilt binary to bootstrap fpc that it should be ok. What i would suggest though is putting the logic in the spec permanently to bootstrap other archs and have a defines control that. Once you have a build that has been bootstrapped. build a new version that is built against the fedora built fpc package. Dennis
