[fpc-pascal]Exit status of compiler on errors

We use FreePascal in our education, and I am working on some scripts
that help teachers to develop programming assignments for students.
These assignments are then entered in PEACH (Programming Education
And Contest Hosting system: peach.win.tue.nl), which automatically
evaluates submitted programs and archives all results.
It turns out that the FreePascal compiler also generates a 0 exit
status when there are (syntax) errors. Is there any way in which
this can be changed? My scripts would be considerably simpler if
the compiler generated a non-zero exit status when the compile is
Any suggestions? Have I overlooked the obvious? The Linux man page
for fpc does not mention an exit status.
