[lazarus] Compiling lazarus

Tony, I loaded up a new Mandrake 9 and tried this out and you are right,
the binutils needs to be loaded to get the assembler.  Then, you have to
create a bunch of symbolic links to libX11.so.?.?, libgtk-??.so.?.?,
etc.  We should find a better way to do this.  This is very confusing
for people to have to create links to all these files.

On Mandrake 9, I created all the link, ran lazarus and it crashed so now
I need to determine if I linked to a wrong version of gtk or something.

I recommend instead that you grab the snapshots of FPC from the FPC FTP
server.  Check out my howto at:

Looks like you don't have an assembler installed, and you'll need it.

I'm betting when you installed Mandrake you did not install the
"Development" options.

On my Mandrake 9 it installed "as" as part of the "binutils" package. 
So, fire up your software manager and install binutils.[whatever].rpm
from your Mandrake CD's.
