There should be no problems mixing both built-in macroses and
environment variables.
Built-in macroses are prior.
So, if i declared environment variable, named TargetOS, and it cannot
be treated properly by Lazarus, then it's clearly my problem, and i
should rename the variable.
If $(var_name) is not found among built-in macroses, environment
variables should be checked for var_name.
