Feeding that error message to Google results in one hit- a months-old 
bug report in Mantis that's now closed.

Now granted that this issue has arisen when somebody's trying to 
recompile Lazarus from the command line rather than from inside the IDE, 
but I wonder if there would be some way to extract error messages from 
reported bugs and have an "is this a known problem?" button?

In any event, having to know exactly what revision of FPC to use 
for/with Lazarus is a problem, and the potential of having (temporarily) 
broken Lazarus revisions is a bigger one.
