Since Lazarus recompiles itself when one installs a new package, how
can I deal with that?

The compiler executable was set in Lazarus to "fpc" i.e. no path at
I changed it to /home/pi/dev/fpc/3.2.0/compiler/ppcarm
Is this the correct way to do it?

Lazarus help/about still says FPC is version 3.0.4 (I guess it knows
which version compiled it)..

Is there a way I can verify if the settings are modified correctly and
the new fpc is in use for this Lazarus invocation?
