Windows uses built-in icon automatically. On linux you need to assign 
project ico file to desktop shortcut manually. I don't know if this can 
be automated since even kde and gnome requires different actions for that.

On OSX we are thinking about the possibility to automatically generate a 
bundle with .icns inside - then OSX will show application using that icon.

There are other possibilities too. Compiler can strip if -Xs is passed 
but I remember some conflicts with -g options. You can also ask fpc to 
separate debug info from the executable using -Xg switch. I can be wrong 
but as I remember -Xg works correctly starting from fpc 2.4.0
