Thanks for the pointers. I just looked in gnulib, and it shows argp as
LGPL. I can import it using gnulib-tool --lgpl.
I see that I could just import argp from gnulib into my program source, but
my program is actually pretty simple and it seems silly to have its code
dominated by argp. So I think I'd still rather package libargp separately,
to simplify my code and make it easier for others who may want to use it.
