The getopt stuff is included for two main reasons. First, only
the GNU implementation of getopt() has getopt_long() and second,
not every non-gnu implementation of getopt handles getopt()
options the same way. For example, on BSD you have to install the
gnugetopt library if we didn't include the files. On solaris,
the handling of optind/optarg is broken/different then gnu. By
including the GNU implementation of it we are assured that GNUnet
can truly be easily ported to new platforms, and that's one less
area to look for bugs. So yes, we are likely to run across such a
library :-) I'm not sure about src/util/sequencer.c, as none of
its functions are called by any other piece of code. Christian?
