But we actually differ from vendor, since vendor still uses
getopt.h, and we don't.

Yes, but that's on purpose. I like it for contrib/groff/ to know
that we have removed yacc(1) output files locally on HEAD, but
still have them on the vendor branch (it's useful in particular
to watch the differences in generated yacc(1) and lex(1) code).

Yes, sure, the step #3 below takes care of that.

You misunderstood me. What I meant is that if file getopt.h
was previously imported on the FSF branch, and then we added
it to FREEBSD-Xlist, but postpone its removal until the next
import as I suggest, to keep the outputs from "cvs co -rFSF"
and "cvs co -rv_x_y" consistent, then after next import we
should remove it on FSF branch. After that, locally modified
files (those on trunk), which are no longer needed should
also be removed from HEAD. And this you seem to agree to.
