Package: fpc-source
Version: 3.0.0+dfsg-10
Severity: wishlist

I'm using fpc-source-3.0.0 as a build dependency for gearhead, to copy
over and patch some line drawing instructions to get smoother console
mode box borders for it.  Currently, I've used fpc-source-3.0.0
directly as the build dependency and access files from under
/usr/share/fpcsrc/3.0.0/ in my debian/rules.

I'd like to rather use fpc-source as the build dependency.  I expect
to have the files I use stay the same across fpc versions.  Nothing
really prevents me from doing that as is but it would get downright
trivial to do so on my end if fpc-source had a symlink like
/usr/share/fpcsrc/default which pointed to the 3.0.0 (as it is
currently) directory.
