       fpcmake - The Free Pascal makefile constructor program.


       fpcmake [-Ttarget] [-pwhrqvV] [filename [filename [filename]]]


       fpcmake reads a Makefile.fpc and converts it to a Makefile suitable for
       reading by GNU  make  to  compile  your  projects.  It  is  similar  in
       functionality to GNU autoconf or Imake for making X projects.


       fpcmake  accepts  filenames  of  makefile  description  files  as  it’s
       command-line arguments. For each  of  these  files  it  will  create  a
       Makefile  in  the same directory where the file is located, overwriting
       any existing file with the same name.

       If no options are given, it just attempts to read the file Makefile.fpc
       in  the  current  directory  and tries to construct a Makefile from it.
       any previously existing Makefile will be erased. See fpcmake(5)  for  a
       description of the format of the Makefile.fpc file.


       fpcmake has a small number of options to control it’s behaviour:

       -h     Emit a short help text describing the use of fpcmake

       -p     If this option is given, a package description file is generated
              as well as a makefile.

       -q     Tells fpcmake to be more quiet, i.e. emit less messages.

       -r     If  this  option  is  given,  fpcmake  will   recursively   scan
              subdirectories for makefile.fpc files and generate makefiles for

       -T     Specifies  the  targets  for  which  fpcmake   should   generate
              makefiles. This can be a comma-separated list of target systems,
              or the special identifier all which indicates  that  a  makefile
              should be generated for all supported platforms.

       -v     This option instructs fpcmake to be more verbose.

       -V     Print fpcmake version and exit.

       -w     This  is  the  standard  option  and tells fpcmake to generate a
