Using 2.6.2 on Linux, trunk (with bigide) currently doesn't build on 
SPARC or PPC unless PascalScript and EditorMacroScript are hacked out. I 
can't currently test ARM, MIPS etc.

Lazarus trunk doesn't run on SPARC, 
http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=23703 plus at least one other.

The new options form looks OK on PPC (32-bit) Linux.

I think there are some options which could be usefully filtered out, at 
the very least -?.

I imagine it's going to be "fun" reconciling any options modified on the 
"All Options" form with the existing "Config and Target" 
http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=20310 etc.
