    Description

      This is a regression from Maven 3.3.9. With 3.5.0-alpha-1, using mvn -f under OS X causes the following error to be printed out (similar to MNG-5688), before the command proceeds (AFAICT) without error:

      > mvn clean package -f releng/repository/pom.xml
      readlink: illegal option -- f
      usage: readlink [-n] [file ...]
      usage: dirname path
      [INFO] Scanning for projects...
      

      FWIW, I don’t get this error on a normal mvn clean package without the -f parameter.
