[lazarus] Proper Lazarus installation

Hi all,

I think, the current 'make install' has some drawbacks.

1. The term 'install' is not very good. It is a run only installation without sources.
2. The ppu/o files are splitted up into /usr/local/lib/{lcl,codetools,synedit}. How can the Makefile.fpc be changed to combine them under a lazarus dir?
3. The IDE needs the sources. IMO lazarus is not a standard application which just needs a binary and some resource files. A development environment needs the sources as examples and for coders to look up, what is not documented (that is at the moment nearly everything).

So, a proper installation of the IDE is:
- the complete source tree
- a link to /usr/bin/lazarus
- some default option files in /etc/
