The screenshot shows that componenttreeview.ppu was found, but the
compiler thinks it needs to be recompiled.

Wrong track. The compiler has already compiled this source to a ppu
file. The problem is that it wants to compile it again, which it
should not.

Please compile the IDE with the compiler verbosity options "-vut", which
you can add to the IDE build options (Tools / Configure build Lazarus
This gives lot of output, so you better start the IDE with command
line parameter "--debug-log=log.txt".
