[fpc-pascal] bug in make install ?

I installed fpctrunk from sources r41749 (make clean; make install).
It resides in C:\PP

I think it is not an unusual setup.

I built lazarus trunk r60747 with it.

Lazarus tells me:
"Warning: Failed to retrieve the version of the fpcmkcfg configuration
tool. It is probably too old to create the configuration files. Make
sure a recent version is installed and available in the path or
alongside the compiler-executable."

But it (fpcmkcfg ) is there, in the same folder as the compiler:

C:\pp\bin\i386-win32>dir fpcmkcfg.exe /b
C:\pp\bin\i386-win32>dir ppc386.exe /b
C:\pp\bin\i386-win32>dir fpc.exe /b

And it is the current path:
PATH=C:\pp\bin\i386-win32;C:\Program Files .....

So, at least this error message is wrong.

The "Create new Fppkg configuration" is disabled.

How to proceed from here?
