[fpc-pascal] Cross-compilation to Linux from win32

after quite some time I thought to give FPC another try to see if it's
a suitable replacement for Kylix.
My goal is to be able to cross-compile Linux elf targets from win32.
So I downloaded and installed 1.9.6, and after that added the units
packages for Linux.
Run up FP, compiled hello world, worked. Switched the target in FP to
linux, compiled again - and wow, it also worked. Using the verbose
output I could even see it using the Linux units etc. All fine.
Until I examined the generated executable "hello". It looks like it's
a Linux binary packed into a PE file. Very weird. Doesn't run under
Linux of course, and does nothing under Windows.
Next attempt was to use fpc directly:
C:\pp\demo\text>fpc -Aelf hello.pp

Some advise on what to do would be very welcome.
