If you have all the options, the minimum is 95 lines, unless you are
going to have more than one option per line.

Like this: "C-r co M-f C-k SPC --usage", usually followed by "| grep
-A2". If I've done that recently, "C-r grep" often wins. This
requires no context switches.
drv> configure --help should be seen as a "quick reference".
That's the way I use it. ;-)
