Put that in the "unit directory" path in " options -> directories" and have
the asterisk behind it (so like the second -Fu line above) .
IOW, the IDE has its own settings (_AND_ its own compiler, it is built in),
and fpc.cfg is irrelevant inside the IDE.

The compiler expands it to the actual target.

Lazarus needs it for its codetools. They can't use the precompiled units
yet for this.
