may I ask to merge rev 62042 into fixes_2_0 for the next patch release?
This change from 2019 fixed building Lazarus with sparta_DockedFormEditor (see
#34899), which is still broken in 2.0.10.
Juha mentioned in #37968 that the sparta_Generics package will go away once 3.2
is the minimum requirement, but r62042 solves the issue for new FPC while
keeping compat with old. And since the official Windows installers come bundled
with FPC 3.2, the bug occurs with the current distribution.

Ah, right, well that also solves the issue :-)

Personally I've been using nothing but trunk of both Lazarus and FPC since some
time during the FPC 2.7 cycle... other, more conservative people have asked me
about this bug and it seemed like a good thing to backport.
Also, sorry about the double message. My mail server gave me an error after
sending the first, but obviously that got through just fine.
