I've been looking into this. popt is there and can be including in the
Win32 required, but there is a problem. popt seems to require libintl
which as far as I know isn't included currently as a peer library. I have
a Win32 version of it and will pay around with it.
If popt has to be required for "sane-ness" then I suppose that libintl
To me, the popt lib doesn't provide a "sane" system but makes all systems
work like *nix where --foo=bar and other things are used. I have not
found the /foo=bar would work which is the expexted for Win32 users.
Perhaps I need to dig more.
