It explains to gcc what compiler passes and in which sequence should
be invoked to compile/link a given file.  For example, that is how it
knows to invoke stubify and delete the raw COFF image when you say
"gcc -o foo.exe".  Some predefined symbols (like __DJGPP_MINOR__) are 
also defined there.

The problem is that the only documentation of the syntax (which is far 
from trivial) is inside gcc.c.
