Yes, I do.

I am not 100% sure what you meant, but I copied over the by fpcmake
generated Makefiles on my amd64 system (so, non-native Debian) and then
I was able to build an arm64 fpcmake (by turning off some parts of the
the regular clean operations in debian/rules). The full build still
failed for me, but at least I had both ppca64 and an arm64 fpcmake.

Using the newly build fpcmake and reverting most of my changes to
d/rules I just successfully ran dpkg-buildpackage -B -d on the arm64
porterbox (hooray). (I had to disable the "unexport FPC" line in
debian/rules and instead do "export FPC=/home/elbrus/ppca64" there.
Should I use PP=/home/elbrus/ppca64 instead?)

I will try to upload the arm64 packages and then I will upload
3.0.0~rc2+dfsg-2 to apply the arm64 patches and to fix the armhf FTBFS.
When that has landed, the arm64 package should be build natively.
