It does, actually.

For example, it suppresses -L that point to the system dirs, like -L/usr/lib. 
But it doesn't suppress -F options like that.

It does deduplication for -I and -l options, but it doesn't for -framework or 
directly-named .lib files. Or for -I flags on Windows, for some reason.

It may be sufficient to get things going, but it's not a tool designed for those
