Hmm, I could not reproduce this on cygwin-1.5, which is another platform
where the system getopt.h is deficient.  Which platform are you on?

Yes, that's a simple hack to fix the issue, but I'd really like to
understand why it is happening in the first place.  Would you mind
repeating the failing case with 'make V=1' so we can see whether there
was a missing -I directive on the gcc command line?
