But how should we do this in reality?
Depends:  binutils | binutils-aarch64-linux-gnu |
binutils-alpha-linux-gnu | .... etc?

Is this instead of what we now add in fp-compiler.postinst? (By the way,
shouldn't we be using ucf for that there?)

You mean arch-dependent, right? fp-compiler-3.0.0 is now creating and
installing that. Should we revise this then?

Yes, you are welcome.

@Ben, do you think the multi-arch hinter on the tracker is correct
(action needed section of: https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/fpc)

PS: I'll upload soon for the other bug and stuff that is already
pending. Would be nice if we could get further on this bug as well.
