It works partially.

broker.pas declare brookfclhttpappbroker.pas, but it was not found:

In fpc.cfg, I tried:


The compiler said it is an illegal parameter, so I took off the quotes.


It was found ./Globals/Seetings/brokers.pas. It's Ok, but when
compiling brokers.pas,
./Globals/Components/Brook/brookfclhttpappbroker.pas was not found.

Perhaps, it's better to have the work of declaring everything individually.
