It's rude to post to a list to which you are not subscribed.  I have

The second arg of main() is required to be of type (char * *) or
equivalently (char * []), without any const; see section of
the C99 standard.  You should be able to pass this non-const arg to
getopt() without any trouble.  What problems did you encounter that made
you want to add a const qualifier?
