I only ever use 'make'. I never use ppc386 directly. I only did so a few
minutes ago to test Shane's statement with regards to the Access

Negative. I did a 'make clean' and it dit NOT remove any of the .o or
.ppu from the various 'units' directories. I had to manually remove
those files to clean those directories. The 'make clean' should remove

As stated above the 'make clean' doesn't do a complete clean correctly.

As to the lazarus build itself. I have manually cleaned and made sure
that no .o .ppu files exist in the Lazarus tree. Then from the IDE's
directory I do a 'make'. 

This call to 'make' errors with unit 'Interfacebase' not fould. I check
and the .o and .ppu do exist.   :-\

I call 'make' again. This time it goes until it errors with unit
'Controls' not found.

'Make' again errors with unit 'Forms' not found.

'Make' again errors with unit 'StdCtrls' not found.

'Make again and this time Lazarus is built.

The only significant difference is the fact that I am using a compiler
cycled from the main branch and not from the fixed branch. However this
shouldn't make a difference. (at least I don't think so).
