EDIT: I have two FPC versions installed so no global path is used.

Then add it to the local path, iow within the cmd.exe instantiation with the PATH command.

Just in case, temporarily I've added the path to the FPC bin folder and tried again but I'm getting an error.
What am I doing wrong?

There should be no need for running make or fpmake at all, fv should be prepackaged in the "units" dir of FPC.

fv is a library.

The textmode IDE is in ide/  and called "fp" as said in the second post in this thread

I don't know if Lazarus delivers its source, or that it got stripped. Note that building it with debugging is involved, you are probably better served by just downloading a complete standalone FPC install.
