When building lazarus with fink, I replace the symlink by the actual binary. 
I also compile with OPT='-gw -dDBG_WITH_TIMEOUT'
and also set the option GenerateDwarf for lazarus.

I will be a careful reader of your guide and incorporate your findings in building lazarus in fink.

Unfortunately, I do not have 10.9. I am happy that i could update to 10.7 lately ;-)
