The dependency-gathering phase of GP is not compatible with this
option. The option generates a lot more output, and trying to filter
it all in GP would be futile. For the regular compilation calls
(where the -Q output is probably most useful), it's no problem

So the attached patch makes GP filter out an explicit "-Q" option
for the dependency calls. This does not help against lack of an
implicit "-quiet", so Waldek's gpc.c patch is still needed. If you
find that it won't work reliably or with all backends, I might have
to make GP add an explicit "-quiet" ... I wanted to say, but
"-quiet" apparently is used internally between gpc and gpc1 only and
can't be given on the gpc command-line, so that's not an option
(quite literally ;-).
