MPlayer configure does just that:

silver:/usr/src/mplayer$ ./configure --unknown-argument
Detected operating system: Linux
Detected host architecture: i386
Checking for gcc version ... 2.95.4, ok
Checking for CPU vendor ... AuthenticAMD (5:13:0)
Checking for CPU type ...  AMD-K6(tm)-III Processor
Checking for GCC & CPU optimization abilities ... k6
Checking for kernel support of mmx ... yes
Checking for kernel support of 3dnow ... yes
Checking for kernel support of 3dnowex ... yes
Checking for mtrr support ... yes
Unknown parameter: --unknown-argument

It would probably be easier if the error message was at the beginning or
the end, though...
