It would seem to me, that it is gm4, that should change to rely on 
Posix-specified behavior of standard functions (like getopt) instead of 
expecting the platform's getopt to be "extended" or building its own 
replacement for the standard function(s).

There was a point in (recent) history, when the concept of "Embrace and 
Extend" was rather frowned upon...
