BTW, I'm trying to add a `getopt' function, starting with getopt.c from
glibc (there is a comment about this need in "builtins.c", and I need it for
`more'). Question : do we need to support GNU long options ? This is 
compatible with the "user friendly" goals, but this is perhaps not that 
necessary for the GRUB (I mean stage2, but if this is the case this will be
the case of grub)?

Other question. What do you think about trying to stick as much as possible
with a look and names of libraries conforming to standard libc, so that 
perhaps, in the future ? compilation of stage2 or grub could be made not via 
defines but with the option given to the compiler about the path of libraries 
(say OS standard for grub, and ./include for stage2) ?
