bug with unrecognized options

Akim et al --

The perl getopt package leaves something to be desired in its error
output.  Compare:

    creche. automake --zardoz
    Unknown option: zardoz
    creche. cp --zardoz
    cp: unrecognized option `--zardoz'
    Try `cp --help' for more information.

I much prefer the cp output.  For one thing it is more "GNUish".
Is it difficult to fix this?
