In trunk, fpc -h shows all options supported by either fpc or ppcXXX
(technically, ppcXXX still shows the list, but it includes fpc specific
options if invoked from fpc). The part handled specifically by fpc should
not be of such a high interest normally, but it may be obtained by diffing
the output of both.

BTW, the parameter '@' mentioned here is apparently not shown in the
options list produced by either -? or -h... ;-)
