Thanks Ralf, putting --family-name before -c mkgmap.args did the trick.
I would not specify the family-name in the args file.  The actual parameter
is --family-name="$(date -r$OSM +"OSM %x")" where $OSM is the input file,
in my case finland.osm.bz2.

For a map with two families, I guess you could use multiple -c files,
one per family, interleaved with the --family-name parameters, if you
wanted to easily embed the date in the family name.
