I looked into my Raspberry Pi2 install notes and found these
dependencies for Lazarus:

Get additional packages:
apt-get update
apt-get install -y libx11-dev libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev libcairo2-dev
gir1.2-coglpango-1.0 libpangox-1.0-dev xorg-dev libgtk2.0-dev

Are most of these superfluous? Is it enough with libgtk2.0-dev?

Then concerning Lazarus itself:

Get the Lazarus sources: 
svn co http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/trunk lazarus

I found that I really would like to run on some form of fairly stable
source, so what would be the correct tag to use in place of trunk?

Will there be a tar package like for fpc or should I go for an svn
Is there an RC tag for Lazarus?
