Description Joseph S. Myers 2011-07-04 22:35:39 UTC
Java -extdirs is peculiar in that it is different from -fextdirs/--extdirs; -extdirs is processed by the driver only, not directly generating jc1 options, while -fextdirs (and the --extdirs alias) is processed by jc1 only.  This may not result in any semantic differences, but it would be cleaner for these options to be handled in one place only with all the other variants being aliases for a canonical version; a difference between -extdirs and --extdirs does not seem sensible.
