Here's a bunch of useful options.
gcc --help -v | grep -e -M
-M Generate make dependencies
-MM As -M, but ignore system header files
-MF <file> Write dependency output to the given file
-MG Treat missing header file as generated files
-MP Generate phony targets for all headers
-MQ <target> Add a MAKE-quoted target
-MT <target> Add an unquoted target
-MD Print dependencies to FILE.d
-MMD Print dependencies to FILE.d
-M Print dependencies to stdout
-MM Print dependencies to stdout
