You are right. This sounds like a bug in the component, however --
after installation of sqllite3laz package, Lazarus itself fails to
start in there is no DLL in path.
The DLL should be loaded only when the connection is made, similar to
the other databases.

I see. Based my incorrect conclusion that Lazarus itself uses SQLite I was
hoping to guarantee its presence for the demo.
I'll just write in the demo documentation that it is required :)
