Thanks for reporting this.  This problem came from gnulib, and Sergey
already fixed it upstream as follows:

This is another upstream bug, this time in paxutils.  Sergey, can you
please install the following patch?  Also, while you're at it, can you
please grant me write access to paxutils, so that I don't need to
bother you with trivial fixes like this?  Thanks.

        * rmt/rmt.c (main): argv is of type char **, not char * const *,
        since getopt might permute the arguments.  Problem reported by
        Joerg Schilling.
