Well, yes and no.
It is not a bug, because to use two different settings the --pcp option
exists (See my answer to the above mail).
And yes, lazbuild does not have an option to override the lazarus
source directory.
The same is true for many other options.

Sharing a lazarus config directory by two different lazarus versions
can give trouble. Better use two different lazarus config directories.
I'm not sure what settings you want to share.
