Subject RE: How to do with glibc-2.1.3 in AOOo?

Support for w_char matters to me, but that is unrelated to work here.

However, there's another place to look.

I know there are command-line utilities in Subversion releases, so I went nosing around. 
There is an <apr_lib.h> reference and apr_getopt... calls.  I haven't found the library
and its source yet, but I bet it might have what is needed for Apache OOo.  It might take
some preprocessor magic to rename back in a custom getopt.h file.

I did trace back enough to know that here are some interesting places to look further:

 Indeed, I had forgotten: :)
