Since I started this whole thread off in the GPC list...
What I don't fully understand is (and anybody correct me if I'm wrong):

1. From what I can tell, it looks like that GPC is a part of the GNU 
project. <http://gnu-pascal.de/gpc/h-gnu.html>
2. So is GCC (obvious).
3. At one point, there was an item under the "GNU Help Wanted" list on 
Savannah: <http://savannah.gnu.org/people/?group=tasklist>, that asked 
for new languages for GCC. Unfortunately, I don't see this item there now.

So why isn't GPC integrated? If the FSF has the copyright for the Pascal 
front-end, why can't anybody just take the available patches and start 
moving them over and getting them worked up?
