These options are the default for every usable compiler. If he actually
needed to add these options it looks like his compiler is pretty broken.
Similary the PIC-related error messages. He's explicitly passing options
to disable PIC code yet the assembler and linker error messages indicate
he's using PIC code. That's very strange also.
