Now I am confused. Do they all include a getopt in their base system,
for example as /bin/getopt , and then external getopt which install as
/usr/bin/getopt or something?
The binary name is getopt on all except on openbsd where it is
gnugetopt? Or were you just talking about the package / port name?

In any cases, this is very interesting, are you able to check it to be
sure it works? Or anyone else?
