That's where Lazarus puts its executable when recompiled (to install 
packages) and the installation directory is not writable. But it's 
started by the system's unique startlazarus, which checks both locations.

Output of find:

[root at localhost /]# find . -name startlazarus

Just a subset of the output of locate, which actually finds *startlazarus*
