I just assume that when trying to make FP and GDB and Lazarus run 
natively on ARM you are on your own, while cross compiling for ARM-Linux 
is a supported option on Lazarus and thus the "powers than be" should be 
interested on helping you top make it work perfectly. It's a mixture of 
"ARM-CE" (i.e. the compiler, which already seems to work quite well) and 
native Linux (the libraries, which do work nicely).
