This doesn't null-terminate myargv.

But I still don't get why the change is needed.  It sounds like you're
assuming Solaris 11 getopt might get fixed?  But even in that case,
the current code will work, right, since it will use GNU getopt?  So
this is just an optimization for the hypothetical case if Solaris 11
getopt gets fixed?  In that case perhaps we should wait for Solaris 11
and test it before installing this patch, as it's more likely to cause
a bug than to fix one.
