Many man pages contain EXAMPLES sections that only list the GNU options
instead of the standard options of the program. If people don't know how a 
program officially works thy tend to copy examples. 

BTW: sorry for being off topic but does anybody know how to write a test that 
finds that GNU rm is not UNIX-98 compliant?

>From http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/7908799/xcu/rm.html:

4.If the current file is a directory, rm will perform actions equivalent to the 
XSH specification rmdir() function called with a pathname of the current file 
used as the path argument.

... but GNU rm has a -d option that makes it behave like the unlink command.
