I think Alexander is on to something here:

Looking at the Steve's changelog for the fix:

do not pass a version script when
+    building executables; this is meant for libraries, and its use appears to
+    be breaking the build on powerpc (probably due to a toolchain regression)

This reminds me of what Adam said of the problem at debconf.  IIRC,
doing something to executables that should only be done to libraries.

I also understood that many of the executables (if not all?) that were
built with the broken version of fpc would be broken.
So fpcmkcfg-3.0.0 is just one of many that will crash, and avoiding
the crash there is not fixing the problem.
