Then you need to convince Apple of that because they supply the linker. The
current version shipped by Apple accepts and ignores the option. Versions
of gcc that take advantage of this are subtly wrong as a result. Given that
Apple does not bother to complain about options it does not implement, it's
considered better to error out than to silently produce possible runtime
bugs. Other providers of gcc apparently feel that subtle, silent runtime
errors are acceptable.
