Looks like there are not yet any Lazarus install downloads ready that 
contain fpc 2.4.0. That's what I'd like to start with, so I'm looking at 
the best way to install Laz with fpc 2.4.0.

I started installing lazarus but the dependency checking said it was 
going to install a bunch of fp* packages that I assumed were older than 
2.4.0 (since they were already in the Ubuntu distribution channel). So I 

I'm thinking if I first install fpc 2.4.0 and then install Lazarus that the Laz install will see the existing fpc install and NOT 
bring in some older fpc packages. Is that correct? I hope so, since 
that's exactly what I want to happen. I'm just looking for some 
confirmation that my assessment is reasonably correct.
