[lazarus] build error on win32

Hi all.

   I have been a lurker on this list a while, and I now have the chance to 
make an app in freepascal (unfortunately it's a closed source app, but I 
can also work on a opensource project as well (-: ).

   Right, so my main target is Win32 - all my development currently is 
under win32, apart from daemon-level stuff on linux, which I use 
jstar/ppc386 for.

   I used cvs on the linux server to pull latest lazarus and copied it to 
my win32 machine which has fpc-1.0.6 installed in c:\pp.  I put it in 

   I issued the command fpcmake, but this didn't do anything useful, so I 
wiped out the dir, got make.exe from mingw (I have too little space for 
cygwin), and ran it.

   The error I got was "windres: images/mainicon.ico: read of 7336 returned 
1198".  I looked at it, and yes, that file didn't seem to be a windows 
compatible icon.  The xpm source is 64x64 and I couldn't find an icon 
editor on my machine that actually creates the new-format 64x64 icons.  So 
I went to webcvs and pulled the 1.0 version!

   That got me past that one, but then I reran make and the following 
happened :

Compiling ideprocs.pp
ideprocs.pp(165,5) Note: Local variable ATEXT not used
ideprocs.pp(245,31) Hint: Parameter AFILENAME not used
ideprocs.pp(624,11) Error: Identifier not found GETENV
ideprocs.pp(629,13) Error: Identifier not found GETENV
ideprocs.pp(632,15) Error: Identifier not found GETENV
ideprocs.pp(746) Fatal: There were 3 errors compiling module, stopping
make[1]: *** [lazarus.exe] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `C:/lazarus'
make: *** [ide] Error 2

   Now I'd rather not wind back ideprocs.pp to get the unit working, and 
I'll start grepping for GETENV, but in the meantime, anyone know why this 
might be?
