I had no Fortran installed.

Yes, they need a new fpc-version (2.3.1 or higher).

I didn't thought about that. In principle, that information should be
removed from 'struct main_type', since the lower_bound, upper_bound and
length aren't defined for plain structures, without any address set. But
that would be far to intrusive. But I wanted to do it as 'clean' as
possible, that's why the duplication.

I'll look if I can fix it without the duplication as you suggested.

Thanks for looking at it,
