I see that adding the option "-M do"
(which I take it is what you meant)
does indeed give a little more information,
or at least gives the same information more simply:

Incidentally, what exactly does "DF set" mean?
Is it telling me that DF is set,
or that it should be set (or even, should not be set)?
If the latter, how can I do that?
