By design or not, the fpc executable holds no version information as of
now, IIRC. Its functionality is very simple and there are almost no
differences among the builds distributed with various FPC releases (the
biggest difference probably being the list of supported architectures and
the corresponding compiler names).

Obviously, it might be changed if needed. The question is if people really
want such a warning. Note that it would work only if you rebuild the fpc
executable as well, so I'm not sure if it would make any difference in
your scenario.
