I think, some defines, you added to getopt.h with your most recent patch
should be removed. In particular:

/* macros defined by this include file */
#define NO_ARG                  0
#define REQUIRED_ARG            1
#define OPTIONAL_ARG            2
  /* The GETOPT_DATA_INITIALIZER macro is used to initialize a
     allocated variable of type struct getopt_data.  */
#define GETOPT_DATA_INITIALIZER {0,0,0,0,0}


- The *_ARG macros are not name-space safe and likely to clash with
other macros. If they really should be kept, then they should be
prefixed with __GETOPT_.

- All of these macros are not standardized anywhere nor am I aware about
any system providing them. I vote for removing them.
