Just try to avoid PATH use, it only will bring you problems
constantly. My path only points to Windows related folders and maybe
to some program that strictly need it to work. Lazarus does not need a
path environment set to work properly.

When a path is strictly needed in command line (like the make case) I
build a little bat that preserve current path, add the needed path,
execute the make or alike and restores the old path.

Since I do this things in this way I had removed a lot of headaches.

Best regards,
