There is no path problem with the compiler. You probably have some 
release installed, which is why compiler could find the necessary 
pacakges/fcl units without you specifying where they were. Newer 
compilers may have an incompatible ppu format, which means they can't 
use the older compiled units anymore. They will then try to recompile 
those units, which is what you are seeing above.

You can work around the omissions in Lazarus' makefile by adding the 
appropriate units paths using make
