You can run Lazarus from console or with logfile (--debug-log=xxx)
Or you can "copy all and hidden) on the msg vie window (popup menu)

Any of this 3 should give you additional info about the output that fpc

With the above, you should see the actual comandline issued by lazarus 
to call fpc, and the fpc version prompt,

Note that "fpc" is just a wrapper, it calls ppc386 (or what ever 
architecture, you need):
- on windows, usually in the same dir (unless you have others in the 
path maybe)
- on linux according to the path, (afaik)

you can configure lazarus to point directly to yhe ppc386, in order to test

inside the fpc install, or same as fpc (exe)

Compile with -va (will give many 1000 lines of output !!) and search for 
it => shows all locations tried, and where found
(use console or better logfile)

Again -va

shows you where the iles are looked for => are that the pathes you would 

Will show a lot of "not found" for all the locations it tries, that is 
correct. (only normally it eventually should find it, in your case it
