I'm a little puzzled here, since you emailed your suggestion to
bug-gnulib.  My impression is that gnulib's gl_GETOPT macro will
detect incompatibilities in the OpenBSD 3.5 implementation, and will
refuse to use it, so you shouldn't have this problem if you use the
gnulib getopt module.  This was fixed in gnulib on August 12.  If I'm
wrong please let bug-gnulib know more details about the problem.
