Definitely not. I think the only solution at that level would be to
compare the generated object files rather than the entire binaries (like
gcc does), but FPC's build system does not easily lend itself to that.

Another solution would be to not support building the compiler with the
RTL of the previous release, or to introduce a policy that the compiler
itself must not depend on RTL features introduced since the last release
(although this is hard to enforce/test automatically, since make cycle
always uses the new RTL).
