ah I forgot that --version is in fact 'perf version'
now I see --build-options depends on --version.. ok ;-)

could you please also create Documentation/perf-version.txt,
now when it has option, we should document it

also please use the standard option parsing API we use in commands:

argc = parse_options(argc, argv, record_options, record_usage,
PARSE_OPT_STOP_AT_NON_OPTION);

so we get standard error when the option is mangled,
unlinke now, when it's silent:

[jolsa@krava perf]$ ./perf --version --buil
perf version 4.16.rc6.gcc183d

thanks,
jirka
