Note: This message is misleading.
The real compiler message is only:

"Fatal: Can't find unit lazreport used by Lazarus"

lazreport is not part of the IDE itself. lazreport is a unit of an
installed package (here: lazreport).

The compiler gives this message when it can not find a lazreport.ppu
or the first it found was not compatible.

You don't set paths to build Lazarus. In fact, if you add paths then
there is high chance that you get strange messages like the above.

Have you tried to build Lazarus clean (see Tools / configure build
