I have done so multiple times and to facilitate installation on a bare
newly installed RPi3 with Raspbian Jessie I created a shellscript file
that does all the work:


- Download the file to your RPi3 home directory.
  I guess you can use wget for that...

- Then change the permissions of the file:
  chmod +x install_laz_pi.sh

- Finally start the script as user pi:

It will run for quite a while installing all of the build required
modules and downloading both the seed compiler, the svn sources for
fpc 3.0.0 and lazarus 1.6 releases.
Then it installs fpc seed compiler and builds the fpc 3.0.0 release
and finally uses that to build the lazarus ide.
It also creates a start menu entry for Lazarus at the end.
