Preprocessing Assembly

    I am using gcc to cross compile for m68k.  I discovered the following on

the net.
"Both .S and .s are assembler. By convention, .S is assembly source that
needs to be preprocessed. Otherwise, gcc doesn't care."
This is of course less than optimal on windows as the filesystem is not case
sensitive.  The work around is of course to invoke gcc -E 'manually'.
Is there a way to force gcc to preprocess assembly using a switch.
e.g. --preprocess-assembly?
