[fpc-devel] Lazarus suddenly creates all config files read only among other things

OK, I just updated to the latest SVN trunk for FPC and Lazarus, and 
recompiled them on Linux ("make clean all" as user, then "sudo make 

I deleted ~./lazarus to have only the basic packages at first.
After executing "startlazarus" as a user from my home dir like I did a 
million times before, first of all it always complains that there is no 
fpc.cfg for the compiler (which is not true, there is one in /etc , but 
even if I put one into /usr/local/bin next to the fpc program it says that).

Then it always complains that /usr/local/bin/fpc does not support target 
linux-i386 (which is interesting considering I just compiled FPC and 
Lazarus with it, in any case "fpc -iTOTP gives "linux i386")

Then all the files created in ~./lazarus are read only, having only r-- 
--- --- access rights, so every time Lazarus tries to exit, it complains 
that it can not save the config files because they are read only.

Same happens with every .res file it tries to create for new projects, etc.

What could be the problem?
