Well if fpc treats -Fu/bla as drive relative paths, it makes even less
sense that:
1. fpcmkcfg creates it that way
2. fpc is able to find anything at all.

I rather was hoping for a more substantive answer ;-(

Why the difference between the 2 fpc.cfg's (3.0.4 vs trunk; I assume
both used fpcmkcfg tool)?
More important: why does builing Lazarus only succeed if I put in
fully qualified paths?
(If it cannot find db.ppu, why can it find system.ppu?)
