Turns out that I was hit by the *same* problem 18 months ago and I got a
solution then right here from Mattias Gaertner...

Look at the thread starting On Sun, 24 May 2020 22:21:31 +0200
titled: Lazarus on Ubuntu 18.04.4 via VNC cannot find utilities

But unlike that time VNC is *not* involved at all since I am now working inside
a VMWare virtual macine with direct access to the desktop.
Still the same problem occurs. And the solution also works.

Right now I have decided to document all details of FPC/Lazarus installation
from sources on Linux since the move to GitLab disrupted all of my instrall

This "detail" has now entered my notes as well so it will be the last time I
bother you with this.
