I have 2 fpc & 2 lazarus installed on my Ubuntu box, and I have no
particular problem. 
fpc: once your svn update is finished, in, say /usr/local/src
* 'make all'
* then 'make zipinstall'

note that I didn't do any system-wide install of the svn version of fpc.
the zipinstall will create a big zipfile, for eg.

* unzip the '/lib/fpc' directory to '/usr/local/lib/fpc'
* check that your '/etc/fpc.cfg' file contains something like:

# searchpath for units and other system dependent things

* Configure Lazarus accordingly, so it uses the svn fpc binary and so

You can find the multiple lazarus HowTo on

As I said, I mainly use Ubuntu & Debian, but it'd work..
