Yes, I have no plans to try to resolve this before 4.4.  I've been
noodling it over in the back of my brain but so far no epiphanies.

The thing is that getopt.c is also an external file, like glob.c.  It's
not developed by GNU make, it was pulled in from an external toolset
(like gnulib--but a long time ago so it's not receiving updates).

I prefer to not make changes to these types of files locally but
instead find a way to import newer versions.

In any event, the C code here is correct, regardless of the warning.
