MMmmm... During Mandrake install I just checked the "development" box
and let Mandrake install all the RPM's automatically for me.  After that
I was pretty much ready to go to install FPC and Lazarus.  I think there
might have been a development library copy of pixbuf or something that
was missing, but that's it.
