You can use git with Lazarus SVN repository and it will be a non-issue. See


Looking at your patches it seems you were not only playing video games.
The fact however is that my code was badly wrong. To fix it one needs to
analyze the current code which is correct at least when the examples are not
built any more.
It is over-complicated and I want to simplify it, but first I will need to
understand how it works now.
There is room for simplification because the list of MakeModes now has only
1 item, IDE, and I replaced it with with a single IdeBuildMode setting.

I will run some simulated builds to see the output better, when I have time.

Mattias Gärtner explained that the IDE should never call "make all".

about the code

>   FCommands[mmCleanBuild]:='clean all';

It resulted in 'make -C lcl all'. Each directory aka Makefile has its own
definition of "all" and "clean".
