This usually means that they were compiled by a previous compiler, or  
that they use units which have been changed and recompiled since the  
previous compilation. In that case, the compiler will ignore the  
precompiled unit and try to recompile it. If it then doesn't find the  
sources, you'll get an error about the unit not being found.

These things won't change if you update FPC. If anything, you'll  
probably get more such problems because mixing units compiled by  
different compiler versions can also cause such issues.
