 For the record -- here's the original discussion about the GCC 
counterpart and the larger change proposed to GAS back then:

http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2005-06/msg00601.html
http://sourceware.org/ml/binutils/2005-06/msg00177.html

Now the option would only serve the purpose of some old Makefiles that 
could have left lingering here or there.  But five years on perhaps that 
does not really matter anymore -- it should be easy enough to delete that 
"e" wherever it still sticks I suppose...
