Luckely it didn't :-) (you need to run fpcmake after changing Mekefile.fpc)

gtk shouldn't be needed here

Hmm..... from your output:

Why is gtkint complaining here...  gtkint is part of the interface for GTK. 
This directory is part of components and should be independent of the 
platform. Thats why there is nu reference to a gtk dir.
It seems to me that somehow there is a platform dependency in SynEdit which 
shouldn't be there.
