[lazarus] Compiler working

I will get this working with the compiler options.  I also think I will move the code to the compiler.pp unit. That way the compiler code will be all contained in the TCompiler class.

I am thinking that I will create a button or something on the Compiler Options dialog that will allow people to save out the options to an options file that they can then pass to the compiler if they want to. If they don't do that and just set the compiler options, then it will call the compiler
directly and pass the options to it from the Compiler Options dialog.

I would also like to use the fpcmake utility somehow to allow the developers to create a make file directly from within Lazarus. Maybe we should include a Tools menu like Delphi does that developers can add their own tools to.  Or we could just add it to the Project Options menu to Create
