Thanks for that.  I had written the original parser while only reading
the gcc 2.95 spec, so it was too conservative with the new 3.2

Actually -MM is like -M in that it writes to stdout and does not
compile, both according to the manual and also in observed behaviour.
So I think that ought to come out of the patch.
