I know lots of developers don't like licensing questions, but I'll ask
Is it intended that RTL is using LGPL v2.1 as its base, while LCL is using
an earlier verions LGPL v2?

Yes, both RTL and LCL are using the same "exception" to the license, but
I'm just curious.

One (not-so) important difference between LGPL v2.1 and LGPL v2 is section
In v2.1 it sort of implies usage of the library as dynamically
linked/loaded library rather than part of executable.
In v2 there's no such requirement at all.
