Do you update both FPC and Lazarus trunk?
I have noticed many people do it with fpcup while they could use FPC
3.0RC2 + Lazarus trunk.
Lazarus trunk is easy to get and use without fpcup. In fact fpcup was
meant for only FPC (as the name reveals) but then a feature for
Lazarus was added.

Is fpcup's current maintainer reading this?
There should be a note that updating both FPC and Lazarus trunk is a
"guru action" and the person should know what he is doing then.
fpcup makes it too easy and give an impression it is OK for everybody.
They could be a new fpcup 2 with a new GUI and revamped options.

My recommendation now is to install FPC 3.0 RC2.
Then Lazarus trunk is easy to get with one "svn co" or "svn up" command.
