Sorry, but as you know the above case does not exist for the Lazarus
binaries, so I thought you were making this up.
As you know the Makefile.compiled is independent of

As you know, the Makefile/Makefile.fpc/Makefile.compiled must be updated in
sync and that it requires the newest fpc to update, because only that knows
all targets. And that's why the auto update is disabled in all lpk of the
Lazarus sources. The Makefiles are manually updated by the Lazarus
developers - of course via the IDE/lazbuild.
Maybe some lpk files have a bug and the auto update is enabled.
Or maybe you updated them by accident.
The Makefiles are updated very seldom, so your update may be a year old.
Which lpk was wrong?
