[Lazarus] Having multiple Lazarus like GetLazarus version

Be careful. When copying all settings between too-different versions it 
may call for trouble. editoroptions.xml is ok. fpcdefines.xml, 
codetoolsoptions.xml and environmentoptions.xml could lead to issues 
since they contain absolute paths of the original installation. 
package-related files (packagefiles.xml, miscellaneousoptions.xml and 
staticpackages.inc) can cause trouble if the new installation does not 
support all required features of the old one.
