In mysql client tool's document, there is a description for '-m'.
'-m' is short form option for '--column-type-info' and it was added in MySQL 5.1.21. See these manual for that.

[MySQL 5.1.x]

[MySQL 5.5.x]

But the latest version for both (MySQL 5.1.56 and MySQL 5.5.9) don't support '-m'.

I supposed that '-m' was depricated or build is broken.
Please modify the document (or program).

How to repeat:
(1) Activate mysql command client tool with '-m'. That cause this error.

: unknown option '-m'

(2) But Activate mysql command client tool with '--column-type-info', it works well.
