[fpc-pascal] Debugger interaction in FP IDE and Lazarus

FP IDE needs to link to libgdb and all of its dependencies in order to have
debugger support. OTOH, Lazarus interacts to gdb via TProcess. FP IDE
approach would be faster but also inextensible and less maintainable. When
there's a problem with the libgdb (i.e. the library is buggy), the whole IDE
needs to be recompiled using the bug-free library. In Lazarus case, changing
the program path to the bug-free one is enough. What if FP IDE uses the same
approach as Lazarus? Any cons you can think of other than speed?
