No, it is the point because the topic was whether packages that depend
on themselves to build can be included in Ubuntu.
If Ubuntu can use gcc to compile the gcc package, they can use Free
Pascal to compile the fpc package. It doesn't matter if gcc is
compilable with the tinycc if Ubuntu's build daemons don't use
Similarly, the GNU make package is built using GNU make. I'm sure it
can be built using other make tools (and probably even without), but it
again doesn't matter.
