None of these...
What I did was this:
1) Installed Lazarus from the binary distro (Windows) a few weeks back
2) Downloaded the 5dpo comonent files from SourceForge
3) Copied them into lazarus/components
4) Installed the SdpoSerial component also a few weeks back
5) When using it found that the SF download contained old code
6) Installed SVN and retrieved the HEAD version of 5dpo
7) Copied this to lazarus/components (renamed existing folder first)
8) In Lazarus tried to install the SdpoSerial component again, failed
9) Renamed the Sdpo folders to reinstate the old situation
10) Tried uninstalling the 5Dpo package, failed
11) Tried compile the SdpoSerial package, no errors
12) Tried Install the SdpoSerial package, still the same error

What can I do except scrapping Lazarus and return to Delphi?
