Re: lib/55350: NetBSD does not have getopt_long_only(3)

I am torn on that one... It is an ugly interface... I am all for compatibility but one can just do #define getopt_option_long_only getopt_option_long with the only functional difference that -long-option does not work and needs to be entered as --long-option.
