AFAIK, the PIC controllers (16 and 32 Bit) use a propriety debug 
interface to be accessed by "PICKit" an "ICD-3" adapters. They do use a 
gnu based  (though propriety made, and payed) C-compiler and linker . 
AFAI understand they use gdb under the hood and as there is the 
("NETBeans" based "MPLab-X" IDE that runs as well on Windows as on 
Linux, it should be possible to use the Lazarus to debug a PIC32 device, 
if you can set up the Lazarus-gdb-interface appropriately.

Do you plan for allowing PIC32 development using Lazarus ? I suppose for 
that you not only need the gdb interface, but also a way to integrate 
MPLab-X originated library files to be integrated in the RTL to have the 
processor even start running.

And/or do you plan to allow for MPLab-X projects to integrate fpc 
generated units ?
