In case it isn't clear, I *do not care* about this problem. I am able to
build gcc myself with no problem.  I *don't care* if it doesn't work for
you since the fix is so completely trivial.

If you want to suggest a fix that goes beyond making the obvious change
to ../include/getopt.h, then send it to the gcc mailing list.
Otherwise, these reports are just noise here.

You've got a functional gcc compiler use it.  If you want to build it yourself,
then fix the source and move on.

How many times do I have to say this???
