And what is your problem? It has way too different set of command line options?

'-E', '-c' & '-o' are standard ones - as inherited from POSIX'
cc/c99/c++. '-MF' is only non-standard what comes to my mind. But it
is rarely needed and used only by legacy build systems a-la make.

Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.
Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.
