The -I option is ambigous, because it means different things to ca65 and cc65.
cl65 allows to compile both, asm and C files in one go, and usually C and asm
includes don't share the same directory, so it wouldn't be a good idea to pass
directories given with -I to both, the assembler and compiler. Obviously, two
different command line switches are needed, and since it is more common to
compile C files using cl65, the -I option is only passed to the C compiler.
For assembler include directories there's a separate option named
