I would prefer that the distribution had it, too, but at least it's a
very small, self-contained patch, rather than several files.

At the bottom of this page --

-- they have an "@file" option like in msvc. I would assume it got
added in the first release 4.2, but I don't really want to go digging

the gcc 4.1 documentation or any of the earlier releases I looked at.
