[Fatal Error] Required package 'rtl' not found.

The above error message now appears whenever I try to compile the main part of my project which includes several packages in the same project group.  There are quite a few directories and the pathes are getting long.  Have I somehow run into a path size limitation?  This is Delphi 6 Enterprise.  I've tried taking things out but to no avail.  The 'path' in options is a simple single path.  Any ideas??? I'm stuck!

try to find rtl.dcp file on your disk and add location to it in Environment options - Library path.

I found in the environment options that the full list of paths for the project were listed - including the last one that I 'thought' was removed.  Upon removing it there, the project worked normally.  This tells me that the buffer for the paths probably overflowed resulting in the loss of a critical one listing the rtl.  Yes, I could move the rtl.dcp file to another location, but the real problem seems to be a limit on the number of characters used to define paths.  Does anyone know this limit?  Meanwhile, I will reconsider the directory structure used for the project, and the length of directory names - just to save charcters.  Thanks!
