It's known, that fpc has problems converting 'array of const' parameters to
different calling conventions. But it seems, that there is also a problem
with converting 'array of' parameters.
So, I have defined a laz_gdk_gc_set_dashes external procedure that uses a
Pgint8 instead of an 'array of gint8'.
You should now be able to compile lazarus.

Perhaps this should be changed in the gdkmain.pp of the fpc package. IMO a
pointer makes here more sense anyway.
