I think I understand it. The not operation was not handled when the operand is a
set which is, in pascal, a bit field where each element is encoded in a bit.
However, in the MIPS code generator, this combination of opcode and operand was
not handled, thus the internal error.

I can see that the similar code (not exact code) exists also for SPARC and
AARCH64. So I assume the fix is good.

Another argument, is that the fix was done by Florian, the original author of
FPC and the porter of FPC to MIPS, so I assume he knows well what he does.

It was more about the need to recompile ALL packages compiled by FPC.

Anyway, I'm pushing this to unstable and asking for an unblock.
