Great !
Thanks for you "help on help".

(I hope that this explanation is right on the fingertips of anybody who 
installed DocView in Lazarus.
Trying to check this I tied to compile the DocView project but I git:
   /usr/bin/ld: warning: 
contains output sections; did you forget -T?
/home/mschnell/Downloads/svn/fpGUI/lib/i386-linux/fpg_x11.o: undefined 
reference to symbol 'FcFontSetDestroy'
   /usr/bin/ld: note: 'FcFontSetDestroy' is defined in DSO 
/usr/lib/libfontconfig.so.1 so try adding it to the linker command line
   /usr/lib/libfontconfig.so.1: could not read symbols: Invalid operation
   docview.lpr(42,1) Error: Error while linking
   docview.lpr(42,1) Fatal: There were 1 errors compiling module, stopping

   obviously silly me forgot something essential (again)

I sincerely hope that finally DocView will get fully integrated in the 
Lazarus IDE on the default distribution.

This does sound great.
