OK, so 'startlazarus' is a GUI application. But I also don't see why the 
splash.pp unit has to pull in the IDE's aboutfrm.pas just to access the 
LazarusVersionStr constant. So that is already a few extra units 
(AboutFrm dependencies included) which gets pulled in, and is really not 

splash.pp could just as easily read the version.inc file without the 
help of aboutfrm.pas
