lazarus-0.9.25-20080828 compiles and runs OK on NT4 SP6a and Linux 
(Debian "Sarge"). Compiler in both cases was FPC 2.2.2 on i386 using 
"make clean bigide".

Compiles for Linux (Debian "Etch") on SPARC using FPC 2.2.3 using either 
"make clean all" or ...bigide". However in this case the IDE runs but 
raises an exception while loading a project and/or closing an existing 
form. I need to check whether this fails with 2.2.0 of the compiler and 
with 2.2.3 with optimisation disabled since it might be a symptom of a 
known issue.

I'm trying to find time to test it running natively on ARM 
(little-endian) under Linux but am having a lot of difficulty fitting 
jobs into the available time.
