Both Phil and I will see to this.
Peter, I think that this resolves at least one question: we WILL support
long options, provided HAVE_GETOPT_LONG is defined. So for you the issue
is now (I think) "can I link to the standard glibc to resolve
getopt_long()". Hopefully the answer is "yes" so that Darwin can do long
options without our having to include the getopt_long code with the
package. At some point, please write and let us know about this...

I am still not 100% convinced but weakening fast...
