I'm not quite sure what you mean with "Control not found". Perhaps you mean "Fatal: Can't find unit CONTROLS" ?

Anyway, I suggest, to use the installation in /usr/local only for dry running LCL applications. To use the IDE you should take a cvs snapshot and use 'make clean all'. Leave the sources and the lazarus binary where they are. You can do that as any user.
If you want a multiuser installation, install the cvs to a directory, where everyone has read perms and link the lazarus binary to /usr/local/bin/lazarus.
