    < Prepend HEADER to output.  Same as 'h-'
    > Prepend HEADER to output.  Same as '-h'

It is not a typo. h- is described under the -h option:

  @item -h @var{name}
  Prepend @var{name} as an additional header file, or, if @var{name} is
  @samp{-}, suppress all header files.

    Also, in what order are -h options applied?

The order given.

    be equivalent to using the following settings from config.pdf?

In terms of ordering, yes, but the config file "h" directive suppresses
the default inclusion of standard headers.

At least, such is my understanding.

    Maybe the documentation should mention the difference
    between command-line and config file?

It did, just very tersely :). I added some more words about it. -k
