I am with Graeme on this one, as in I do not see what you may have 
written, that solved the above....

To be sure: this mail ?:  

where does it solve that if I write a unit with this lazarus namespace 
(my installation)

will work on a default windows install; not to speak a linux system. The 
path depends on the system.

If you mean the path, is only a string or placeholder, and does not 
actually point to the sources (which I can not find in your mail), then 
how does fpc know the correct path to the source? (I have 4 lazarus 
instalations, and 3 fpc installations => with different versions => how 
is fpc going to work that out?
