Yes, you're right, my cvs compile is using the BSD LIBC getopt_long().
Usually GNU utilities reject this version and force the gnulib variant, cvs
configure didn't. I'll try to get the gnulib variant into my Makefile.

Done. I got a new test running now - at least it passed this issue and

Just FYI, rather complicated debugging shell processes in Interix since it
running in a parallel OS (or NT subsystem) from what you see on the screen.
But once you get inside it's no problem doing that in Visual Studio (no
other debugger seems capable).
