Check if there is a /etc/fpc.cfg and no old /etc/ppc386.cfg.

Check if the fpc.cfg contains the following lines:

Check that the /etc/fpc.cfg does not contain search paths to the lcl source files (.pp, .pas):
      forbidden: -Fu(lazarus_directory)/lcl
      forbidden: -Fu(lazarus_directory)/lcl/interfaces/gtk

If you want to add the lcl to your fpc.cfg, make sure that the two paths looks like the following and are placed after the above fpc lib paths:

And last but not least:
After updating the compiler, use 'make clean all' in the lazarus dir.
