You can look at the online docs:


and search for -pendantic for the general description, and:


and search for permissive, to see the condition Alexander speaks of.

(I'm new to FreeBSD, but I get the impression the FreeBSD gcc33 port
    changes a few gcc behaviors. So those docs won't be perfect. But
    they aren't in the first place, and are better than nothing until
    some does the hard work merging in documentation files.)
