Maybe we need to point lazarus users to some build manual (if exists) or 
create one (in other case).

But indeed building from svn is very easy:
- to clean and build ide without external components: make clean all
- to clean and build ide with some external component: make clean bigide
- to clean and build ide with all user component: make clean idepkg

Nothing more and no need to download 40mb of snapshots every day. And 
also no need to reinstall that snapshots.

Best regards,
Paul Ishenin.
