Only if there is a Makefile in that directory.

I use to change the PATH in my console window to e.g.
or whatever is applicable to your installation. This way no other 
(BDS...) tools can get into the way. Effectively I've put according 
setpath24.bat and setpath25.bat files into the bin directory, that is in 
the initial Windows PATH.

Then I CD into the desired FPC (or Lazarzus) directory, where the 
Makefile resides, and do a make clean all.

This can be done with the PP=... or FPC=... options (should be equivalent):
   make clean all PP=C:\Programs\lazarus\fpc\2.4.2\bin\i386-win32\fpc.exe
