Yes, that option is processed by fpc normally and ignored by ppcXXX 
if it is called with that option. This fact may be used in makefiles 
so that the specific ppcXXX may be called instead of fpc under 
certain conditions while still allowing the same command line options 
to be used rather than getting an error message.
