I get an error running lazbuild from trunk:

ERROR: Package file not found
The package "DebuggerIntf" is installed, but no valid package file (.lpk) was found.
A broken dummy package was created.
lazbuild is non interactive, aborting now.

Given that there is no way lazbuild can be used for debugging, I find this a rather strange error.

When I run the 1.2.6 lazbuild, no such error appeared.

I dug somewhat deeper, and found that when the package system is initialized,
in TLazPackageGraph.LoadStaticBasePackages there is a list of packages that is always loaded.

For the following packages, I think it is doubtful that lazbuild needs them:


I think that the initialization can use a parameter 'buildonly : boolean' which simply does not load
"visual" packages when set.
