I have checked all the apps in /usr/hurd and here are the results.  Some of 
them may be valid..??

ext2fs.static:  No -V/--version output
fwd:  all arguments just display Usage:.  Checked the code and it is not using 
argp or getopt

ifsock: all arguments yeild "must be started as a translator"  This may be 
valid output???

init: --help and --usage yield: "can only be run by a bootstrap system"

mach-defpager: all arguments yield: "Another default memory manager is already 

pflocal: all arguments yield: "Usage: ./pflocal"

ufs.static: --help and --usage work but no --version, -V output

I can take a look at this if anyone thinks they should be fixed.  Though I 
don't know if I am "allowed" to send patches.  Anyone have any thoughts on 
this?  Anyone care??
