[fpc-pascal] FPC static linking of zlib

Some time ago, bug #472304
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=472304) was filed against
Debian, cause FPC does not link executables dynamically. This bug should
have been fixed with FPC 2.4.0
Unfortunately, the binaries generated by FPC 2.4.0 on Debian seem to link
zlib statically, which is a clear violation of the Debian policy and might
prevent packages compiled using FPC from beeing accepted into Debian.
Could someone please give some feedback about this bug? When does it get
fixed? Why is it not already fixed? Or is it already done in FPC and
there's just some parameter missing?
Thanks and kind regards
