Unless I am doing something foolish, I am getting these results:

-Xp/home/me/Programs/fpc/2.7.1/lib/fpc/2.7.1 -h
shows -V and -Xp

No -V and -Xp

/home/me/Programs/fpc/2.7.1/lib/fpc/2.7.1/ppc386 -h
No -V and -Xp

No -V and -Xp

In all cases, 'Free Pascal Compiler version 2.7.1 [2014/02/08] for i386' 
is shown at the top of the help.
