Re: ed package

getopt is in libiberty. It's also in glibc, and people have a bad habit of not
checking for that in configure. I'm thinking about packaging libiberty, and
making patches to check for getopt there. Might be easier to deal with than
fifty separate versions across fifty source packages...
