How can I see what paths are part of the indylaz package?
I just installed it using OnLine Package Manager so I have no idea
where it is located.

Does not seem like the right way to do it, for one it will not be
portable to another Linux installation (the one I will move to on
Linux for instance)...

OK, I do know how to search for and find it but as I said it will not
be portable that way. I believe Lazarus should resolve this from the
package data...
