Note: gnulib is not a _dependency_, as it's imported inside the sources, 
that's why I said there are about 100kb of sources _more_ to add.

Besides, the fix Rocky already committed solves one problem, but might create 
more problems if getopt() is present and usable in the c library, but the 
declaration is somewhat different from the one in glibc, as it uses the glibc 
header unconditionally.

gnulib instead checks for availability of a suitable getopt() function, if it 
fails, it use internal copy and internal headers, rather than using internal 
header and external function.
