Some strange error pop up like #19289: Error on rebuild

  /usr/lib64/lazarus/ide/lazarus.pp(130,1) Error: Can't call the resource 
compiler "/usr/bin/fpcres", switching to external mode

It is a single case, but the forum had many complaints when people updated 
from 0.9.28 to 0.9.30. Also when people try to compile trunk and they had a 
release version earlier, they often have problems.
A typical one is:
  can't find unit xxx needed by unit yyy.

Those people have usually cleaned their file system and deleted local config 
files. So, updating seems to be a bigger problem than a fresh install.
