gnulib is using argp verbatim.  However, I'd rather we didn't install
ELIDE_CODE patches into glibc and gnulib, as the basic idea is a hack
left over from the days when people didn't use Autoconf.  We should be
able to modify gnulib to handle this problem automatically, without
needing ELIDE_CODE.

Simon, this sort of Autoconf automation is already being done for
alloca and for fnmatch.  Can you please look into doing it for argp
too?  For more details, please see:


In the meantime, the current situation is OK, as ELIDE_CODE is merely
an optimization.
