[Lazarus] Compiling IDE issues using FreeBSD 9.1 & FPC 2.6.0

Lazarus IDE fails to compile under FreeBSD 9.1 (64-bit) using FPC 2.6.0.

First of all, the Readme.txt file is wrong. It says to use 'make clean
all', well apparently not so under FreeBSD. After peeking at the
Makefile in the /usr/ports/editors/lazarus/ directory, I guessed I
should use 'gmake' instead. This started compiling lazarus, but then I
got an issue of a missing unit.

I've checked out Lazarus Trunk r40096.

I don't want to install FPC and Lazarus from ports, because I want
different install locations, and will be switching to FPC 2.6.1 (fixes)
branch soon. Also I want to try Lazarus Trunk, instead of 1.0.4.

Yet, if I do the following, it does seem to find the unit in the
directory hierarchy.

$ find . -name fileutil.* -print

Any ideas?
