Do you actually mean, whether it's ok for a new
test (not test suite) to go in untested on GPC?  It certainly is.
Better test on FPC than nowhere.  :-)

AFAICS, the tests themselves don't really care which compiler
is in use other than for marking xfails; you just call gdb_compile_pascal,
and that works with either.  That's my impression from quickly
skimming testsuite/lib/pascal.exp.
