Sorry for the late answer, I missed this post:

>And Comile Oberon or Parse Active Compile Oberon(??)?

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
	Metadata: PCT
	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.
