Sigh, we really need some way to check for these sorts of issues via CI.

Ah, I think I should've just added these to my previous 8.2 ticket: #14985

bgamari: It's actually even worse, because some of the -fprint- flags actually *had* documentation in previous version of the user guide, but were removed.

Ahh, yes, it looks like 8f19c65c66e38709a8acba8f86015053d2c04126 dropped a few flags. That's quite unfortunate. Would you be interested in submitting a patch to fix this?
