Re: autoconfiscating getopt_long()...

What I have done so far (and it seems to work), is to copy getopt.c and
getopt.h to getopt_long.c and getopt_long.h, and then to use the following
useless_SOURCES=useless.c getopt_long.h tailor.h
dnl This condionally links getopt_long.o

#  include "getopt_long.h"
#  include <getopt.h>

I have no idea what tailor.h does yet, but getopt.h #includes it.  And I
didn't do anything with getopt1.c 'cause I didn't know what the hell it
was.  I'll be looking at those two later.

I'm happy with this solution so far (I've only used it for 45 minutes!).  I
was really just wondering why no one else seemed to do it.  I'm still
paranoid that I'm missing something.
