Any ideas how this "build the fpc units separately first" is
I have installed FPC 2.4.2 from the binary distribution (on Windows)
and then to make Lazarus happy I also separately downloaded the FPC
2.4.2 sources. It complained that it could not find them when I first
started lazarus after building from sources.

I know how to build Lazarus, but not how to build FPC...
