Indeed it does so assume ...

Clearly it should. I was kind of hoping that wouldn't be necessary, but
compilers differ too much in how they handle unknown options. Note that
we already have a workaround for clang for the same issue, but I doubt
we can rely on a similar workaround for Sun CC (and all the other myriad
compilers out there).

Thanks for the report, I'll look into fixing this.
