Can it be that make searches for binaries in its own directory? (or does 
Windows do that by default?!)

E.g. (without any FPC dir in %PATH%):

C:\Programs\lazarus\fpc\2.4.2\bin\i386-win32\make.exe will use FPC 2.4.2 
in the same directory


C:\Programs\lazarus\fpc\2.2.4\bin\i386-win32\make.exe will use FPC 2.2.4 
in the same directory

This would explain the behavior described in Bo's mail "Multiple FPC 
versions for Lazarus", where he "just" switched the make 
utility and achieved different results
