Summary 0005990: Add support for registering DCU path when installing both JCL and JVCL
Description In order to place DCU-files also in a centralized way like with BPL and DCP files, support is needed to register the path to the place where DCU files should be placed.

If possible, short-hand notation like $(DCU) is wanted (in case defined in the setup)

That change should be made very carefully. The JVCL Installer deletes all *.dcu files in its DCU-Output directory that don't belong to the current JVCL source code base. So if you point the DCU output directory to a "shared" directory, this directory will only contain the JVCL *.dcu files after the installation. All other *.dcu files will be deleted.

Well, if a restriction about starting all .pas files (.dcu) with jv(cl) or jcl, then, when changes are done, you could restrict the delete to jv(cl)*.dcu and jcl*.dcu so any others are kept.

That wouldn't hold for something like "jvalue.pas" that doesn't have anything to do with the JVCL. That "clean up" code must be deactivated when compiling to a different DCU output directory. But then we are back at a mix of old and new *.dcu files causing trouble when compiling applications (that's why this clean up code was introduced)

I'm sorry, but I don't see the point for this. I mean, if you don't want to recompile the DCUs everytime, simply add the DCP path to your search path.
