I for one have no desire to use lazarius ide, but I would like to use  
some of the libraries that come with it.
I however, have been completely unsuccessful in getting the lazarius  
environment to build properly on osx.  It is supposed to work, but all  
I get is errors about missing units, same with trying to use pascocoa,  
missing units, and no compile.
I'm not new to building from scratch, but the instructions say one  
thing about how to do things, and the actuality is completely different.
It's not important enough to me to waste the time it would take to  
iron out these issues, since the base fpc install works just fine for  
my needs.  Having pascocoa working would be a nice plus, but its by no  
means necessary, as I can use java for my gui building if necessary,  
then using the xtools, tie that java code back to C  or pascal code to  
do the work behind the gui.
However, if someone else manages to take the time to solve these  
problems, I'd certainly test/use such an environment, but at the  
moment, it's not important enough to me personally to bother with it.
(especially since when I ask questions about it on list, I get answers  
that don't even pretend to address the issues of which I have asked)
To me, that just cries no contest.  And, if the actual fpc folks dont  
care enough to give valid answers, then I dont care enough to make it
