Personally, I never actually install my development FPC versions (other than manually copying the compiler binaries under different names, since as I work on the compiler it's handy to have multiple versions for comparison purposes).
I have a .fpc.cfg file in my home directory that looks more or less like this:
You occasionally have to modify the version numbers in the #ifdef statements, but other than that it's fairly hassle-free. How to combine this with Lazarus, I don't know.
