[fpc-pascal] Linux elf with signed checksum

I see that most of the ELF on my system, contain a signature like so:
ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked
(uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.32,
There are two very interesting signatures here that does not exists when
creating an ELF with FPC:
1. GNU/Linux 2.6.32
The second part is more interesting for this subject: It signs a checksum
of the ELF file, so any change to it will break the checksum.
It helps you to discover for example root-kits.
Is it a compiler based signature, or something from the build itself ?
If it's from the compiler itself, what is the requirement to add such
support for FPC ?
