Afaik the IDE config is independant of the compiler config.

Compiler: fpc.cfg
ide  : fp.cfg/fp.ini/fp.dsk

Think of the FPC compiler as a basic "compiling" library.

ppc386, the IDE, and Lazarus are independant programs, using that library
for compiling.

For the IDE, setting the compiling paths are set in 
"options -> Directories -> unit directories" much like -Fu on the command line.
