System: NetBSD 1.3.2 NetBSD 1.3.2 (GUAVA) #0: Wed Feb 17 10:21:50 EET 1999 i386


The file /usr/pkg/pthreads/include/unistd.h, installed as part of the
devel/mit-pthreads package, lacks a function prototype for the
getopt function as well as declarations for getopt's external variables.


    $ cat getopt-test.c
    #include <unistd.h>
    int main(int argc, char **argv) {
	int ch;
	while ((ch = getopt(argc, argv, "a")) != -1) {
	    /* body uninteresting */
	argc -= optind;
	argv += optind;
	return 0;
    $ /usr/pkg/pthreads/bin/pgcc -Wall getopt-test.c
    getopt-test.c: In function `main':
    getopt-test.c:4: warning: implicit declaration of function `getopt'
    getopt-test.c:7: `optind' undeclared (first use this function)
    getopt-test.c:7: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
    getopt-test.c:7: for each function it appears in.)


Add the following patch to the the
/usr/pkgsrc/devel/mit-pthreads/patches directory:

The pthreads package actually installs both a <unistd.h> and a
slightly different <pthreads/unistd.h>.  I have no idea what the
latter is for.  Depending on its purpose, perhaps it should also
have the getopt declarations added.
