[fpc-pascal]Using FPC 1.1 for bootstraping compiler v1.0.7

There was a situation when I only have 1.1 binaries.
FPC v1.1 do not want to compile compiler v1.0.7 without a patch.
Patch is mainly do
    $FFFFFFFF  ==>  -1
replacing (v1.1 complain about outrange longint initialization).
Is there in FPC option to setup for such case a behavior as in v1.0.7 ?

PS: if you remove
	override RELEASE=1
from root Makefile.fpc, then you can not build a 1.1 dist with 1.1 compiler 

There is no such problem for v1.0.7 ( I work under RH  Linux v7.2)
