GetOpt.h etc are part of now obsolete libg++, which has been superceded by
libstdc++, the C++ runtime library.

Your best bet is to port the library, or get libg++ and build it yourself.
(see FAQ at http://egcs.cygnus.com/faq.html for pointer).

If you do build it yourself, you'll run into the problem that libg++ adds
headers such String.h, which on win32, conflict with C header string.h
and Complex.h which conflict with C++ header complex.h. To use it
correctly, you'll need to define "header.gcc" which maps header names.
It's a maintainance headache.
