  this is probably an installation problem:
fpc -PB
which will print the full path of the binary used to do all the work.
  Most probable is that fpc still find the old 3.0.4 version, because
you installed the new 3.2.1 snapshot without using
make installsymlink
in compiler directory.
  This is because the generated new compiler is installed
in a directory BASE/lib/fpc/3.2.1,
but this directory is not in the path, and the compiler is only found by fpc
in BASE/bin dir, if a symbolic link to BASE/lib/fpc/3.2.1/ppcCPUSUFFIX
is added.
  This is the role of "make installsymlink".
(Of course BASE and CPUSUFFIX need to be adapted to your setup)

  Please check and report if this solves your issue.

Great and thanks! That was the cause!!!! Did not know about the make installsymlink, though make install would be enough. Always learning something new!!!
