I don't think that extracting to /usr/bin is a good idea. That is, where System stuff is expected. I consider /usr/local/bin a much more appropriate place. --Mischi 12:35, 17 January 2012 (CET)

I put it under /usr/bin/ because I want people to understand it not depend on FPC exactly.

I do not really get it. What is actually the use of fp without the compiler? --Mischi 18:11, 18 January 2012 (CET)

You should clearify the CPU target and minimal OS version of your binary (I tested on 10.6 and it works). lipo shows that your fp is i386 code. There are still users out there with PowerMacs on 10.5. My experience is that only support/demand for 10.4 is really going down. May I make the hint, that fp is also built as a part of the fpc package in fink, which has the advantage that it is also build for powerpc and older systems and clean install and remove actions. I am not actively using fp, but I could include patches when building the package. --Mischi 18:11, 18 January 2012 (CET)
