That normally means that the compiler is still using the wrong 
configuration file. It might still use the ~/.fpc.cfg (or even the 
/etc/fpc.cfg) which point to the 2.2.4 paths. You need to override the 
paths in there with the ones from your current installation. For that 
just backup the current ~/.fpc.cfg (or copy the one from /etc/fpc.cfg to 
~/.fpc.cfg) and add "/home/???/LazarusInstalls/fpc240" before all 
"/lib/..." paths. If there are "2.2.4" values you should also replace 
them by "2.4.0".

Sidenote: the compiler shouldn't look for "contnrs.pp" but for 
"contnrs.ppu" (and "contnrs.o") in 
"~/LazarusInstalls/fpc240/lib/fpc/2.4.0/units/i386-linux/rtl", because 
those units were already compiled when calling "make".
