gearhead currently build-depends on fp-compiler, which is only
available on 5 architectures.
If it could transition to gpc ("pascal-compiler"), it would be
available on all 16.

Subject: fpc no longer in Debian; closing request to use it
Date: Sun, 16 Mar 2014 19:21:34 +0200
Hi.

As gpc has been removed from Debian (see
http://bugs.debian.org/613588), I don't see that gearhead would ever
move to use it.

I would like to point out that the upcoming 2.7 version of fpc also
targets JVM and there's a chance that gearhead could gain support for
all architectures that way.  But I think that's a separate issue and
I'm closing this bug report now.
