That is the right way.

As an alternative you can install the FPC 2.6.4 deb (e.g. from the
Lazarus site), then download the FPC 3.0.0 sources and 'make install'

Lazarus needs libgtk2.0-dev, which should automatically install

Lazarus 1.6RC1 will be available soon and it provides deb
packages for FPC 3.0.0 and Lazarus.
