LPI files are already included with FPC. E.g. for the compiler itself 
(so you don't need to add all search paths manually...) and for the 
Win32 RTL (excluding the system unit).
No autogenerate system will add the correct searchpaths by itself, so 
some file must be included for that system. So why not use the LPI file...
