a quicky about gcj command line

Is there any way to just get the gcj options from the cmd line?

Since gcj is just a symlink to gcc one always get's the main gcc
message. I realise I can get all sub helps by doing:

   gcc -v --help

but that's way too much information.

Is it possible to do something like this:

  gcj -vgcj --help

In fact I think it's pretty poor that gcc doesn't pick up the name
it's being called by and work out what help to return (though I think
someone did try to explain why that couldn't work).

I know this is a silly thing, but it's just such a pain!
