Well, if this is a bug I guess it would work itself out later.

Ok, under linux make must be readily available w/o FPC.  Ummm.  This
really complicates things for ppl who don't know what they are doing
under Windows.  Linux is FAR EASIER to manage FPC/Lazarus via

I suppose a command line utilty could be made to list PREFIX FPC
folder for missing files that are not present AFTER make install and
that would cover the merging automatcially.
