The "make install" is not complete. Gladfully you don't need it. 
Lazarus is a development tool and its binaries and sources work together.
That means, they should stay in one directory.
So, contrary to most c programs, which require "configure", "make", "make
install", lazarus only needs "make". 
Just put the lazarus directory wherever you like and do a "make" or "make
clean all". Sources and binaries live happily together in one directory.

MDI is not implemented yet. Any help is welcome.
