Didn't have to do this...
In fact I re-evaluated the Lazarus configuration and changed a few
remaining paths to point into the correct lazarus version folder.
So not only the fpc paths had to be changed, also the others.
After this the project compiled all right.

Can one use environment variables in the path specifiers in lazarus
configuration instead of fixed paths?
If so what is the correct syntax?

With environment variables it would be possible to set these in a
lazarus start script before launcing lazarus and then the config would
not have to be changed at all.
