Another possible Problem with the definition

TFPColor (fpc)  record with word <> TColor (lazarus) 
-$7FFFFFFF-1..$7FFFFFFF <> TFPReportColor (fpreport) UInt32

So you cannot use in Lazarus the 'well known' TColors. With TColor it is 
also Delphi compatible.

If the defines are Lazarus compatible. It works for both systems. I can 
make a patch if needed. But the teams have to IMHO to decide the best 
way :-)
