The "vanilla" cvs-1.12.12 builds on irix and seems to run. The included
GNU getopt is used. There is a getopt.h, but no getopt_long_only. Thought,
Derek's test for "-+" would be necessary, but that's not the case. I do not
have autoconf and automake, there, so i cannot test the various patches. 
I'm running out of time. I have to quit. Thanks very much for your effords.
When there is something to test, i'll still try to help.
