I just found one small issue: if you use Lazarus 0.9.30.2 to compile 
graphic applications, it will pass -WG option to FPC, on all platforms. 
However FPC 2.6.0 rejects this option ("Error: Illegal parameter: -WG") 
on platforms where it's not sensible (like Linux). Bottom line: you 
can't "graphic applications" from Lazarus (including lazbuild) 0.9.30.2 
using FPC 2.6.0 on Linux.

This is of course fixed in Lazarus SVN by Mattias already :) See 
revisions 31125 and 31127 
(http://svn.freepascal.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi?view=rev&root=lazarus&revision=31125 
and 
http://svn.freepascal.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi?view=rev&root=lazarus&revision=31127 
). To workaround, you may need to backport these changes for Lazarus 
0.9.30.2 (or just switch to Lazarus SVN, which was my solution :).
