Is there a "best practice" way of installing Lazarus packages at build 
time, to avoid the extra time of a second build once the IDE is running 
(possibly followed by another build of librarees etc. once the first 
project is compiled)?

When I started using a local svn repository I patched lazsvnpkg into the 
makefiles etc. which appears to work OK with fairly recent versions of 
Lazarus (from around 0.9.26), but I'm not entirely happy with it since 
strictly the patch should be regenerated each time in case the sources 
have changed.
