Yes, I did do an update prior to the apt-get for fpc but it didn't go well.
I just re-imaged the SD card and did this again. The update error'ed out and I traced the problem to (embarrassed to say) I had left out the "b" in raspbian in the line added to sources/list. I assume I did something like this the last time I tried this as well.
It has completed the fpc and lazarus installation and I am now good to go. Sorry for the "problem report" due to my apparent typo.
Question: what exactly does the line: "deb http://plugwash.raspbian.org/wsf
wheezy-wsf main" do?
