If you open a pascal source, lazarus automatically checks, if this is a program and asks you if a new project should be built with it. If you answer 'Cancel', the IDE saves this answer in the current project file and in future treats this file always as normal source for the project. 
Some hours ago, I added this feature to the menu: Project -> New Project from file.
