This only works if changes are made to the Lazarus IDE, but will fail if the 
FPC RTL is rebuilt because the LCL must first be rebuilt to use the new FPC 
RTL and only then can Lazarus (IDE) be rebuilt. 

Attempting to build Lazarus as per the above causes the compiler to halt with 
a  "checksum changed" error on the first changed unit it encounters.

By the way, I'm trying to rebuild the Linux version on Linux.
