Lazarus packages are usefull, but i don't want to use them for some projects.

this is the step, i'd like to avoid.
all i want, is to specify paths and compile (whole project at once),
rather than splitting into steps: package1, package2 ... packageN and
then project itself.

I know, this needs to be done only once, because if package's
sources're changed, IDE will detect it and recompile the changed
package. And other project using package1, 2 .. N will not require to
compile them again.

But still, it can be very annoying. For example, with the project
itself, there might be a lot of small test applications based on the
same libraries used, for each of them i'll have to specify packages
dependency (again and again for each test). IMHO, it's easier just to
copy-paste search paths.

My point view: the less IDE buttons need to be pushed - the better :)
