There is probably a conflict between your fpc version and the fpc version used for building the binary.
Plz download the lazarus sources (cvs or snapshot) and compile them manually:

export CVSROOT=:pserver:cvs at cvs.freepascal.org:/FPC/CVS 
cvs login

the password is 'cvs'

cvs -z3 checkout lazarus
make clean all
