seems not-unreasonable.  here are some comments:

* there should probably be a way to disable this, and/or to limit
the number of programs which are used in this way.  (really, it should
be possible to switch them between built-in and stand-alone, without
modifying the source tree, in my opinion.)

* it would probably be good of the change to mount/mntopts.h were
instead _generated_ from the list being built into the single binary,
into a header file which was then included.
