  I tried to use that and it seems to work partially.
gpc seems to have problems in setting the correct position
for a breakpoint.
  After 'break 10' and 'cont' 
gdb ends up at line 11 :(
  I suspect that this is not specific to gpc,
but it might be related to the fact that default optimizations
are too high, and that thus the debug information is
not completely reliable.

No, it must be something else:
if I first load the hello executable, 
then it claims:
No symbol "a simple string" in current context.

This probably means that it is still looking for a 
symbol instead of taking it for a constant string.
This is indeed a bug that should be fixed.


  I get 3 errors for gpc and one for fpc
with the files below.
  What should we do?
  Comment out all failing test, or simplify 
them so that they succeed?

  Failing tests are good ways to 
get things fixed, no?
  If we remove all failing tests, chances are higher that
we will not fix them.
