--- Comment #1 from Ed Maste <emaste at freebsd.org> ---
Thanks for the submission and I'd like to see this get fixed for 12.0.

It appears this was broken by r97533, but I don't really understand why that
change was made. I guess I can see value in supporting "unlink -- file" but
don't see a reason to call getopt. Perhaps we ought to just

if (argv == 2)
else if (argv == 3 && argv[1] == "--")

The man page in your patch needs one more minor update: s/Either of these/Any
of these/.
