Its not exactly a bug... more of a pointless dependency,

The only way you can be getting this error is if Lazarus can't fin the fpc 
sources. You MUST have the FreePascal source tree installed, and readable to 
use the IDE for form editing, or any of the advanced features you might find 
the Code Editor(Find declaration, Open File at Cursor, etc..) And you must 
have the lazarus source directory pointing to the exact location...

You cant get the FPC Sources from any of the FreePascal Mirrors. Its easiest 
to get sources from the tar.gz package, which puts everything by default in 

Once the Source are in place, Lazarus must know where they are,  so the FPC 
source Director option must point to this directory.

If you think you've already done all this.. and your still having problems, 
its not really a Lazarus problem, but something with your system, or you 
have done something wrong. :-(

When I updated to FPC 1.0.6 I dowloaded the full tar.gz package, and 
installed everything, and I have never had this issue with Lazarus so long 
as I  pointed to the right directory.

Hope this helps, but isn't this in the FAQ?
