Sorry for the late answer, I missed this post:

PaCo stands for Parallel Compiler. It was an acronym for scope parallel
compiler, where every scope was compiled by an independent thread.
See Patrik Realis PhD Thesis, Chap. 5 (available here: https://www.research-collection.ethz.ch/handle/20.500.11850/72831) . As given in his Fig. 5.1, PaCo
consists of the following modules:
Control and Coordination: PC
Service: StringPool PCM
Back-End: PCLIR PCBT
Symbol-File Plugin: PCOM
Object-File Plugin: PCOF
Active Oberon Parser: PCP PCS PCB PCC
Assembler Plugin: PCA386
Emitter Plugin: PCG386
>Any ideas about the origin of the "Fox" name?
Yes (but Pablo answered this one already correctly):
Flexible Oberon Cross (X) compiler.
