I'm trying to bootstrap a new pkg tree on a Solaris 2.7 machine and have
run into a problem.  archivers/pax is using long options (getopt_long)
however this functionality is not being supplied by libnbcompat.  I'm not
very good with autoconf but it appears that the script for
libnbcompat looks for getopt.h on the system and builds getopt_long if it
is available.  This is the opposite of what I'd expect since the system
would need getopt_long in the absence of a c library version.
