Correct. This is the compiled units (.ppu) directory, not the FPC source
directory (.pas and .pp). Download the fpc tgz OR the fpcsrc rpm OR the fpc
svn (subversion repository).
Hint: The fpc sources is just a directory with source files, you don't need
to 'install' them. Just unpack it and tell the IDE, where it is.

There is a ppc386, but probably not a directory 'compiler'.
