Once 5.3-RELEASE released, we have complete getopt_long_only() for 5.x
and libgnugetopt for 4.x. Do we really need to support 5.0R-5.2.1R?
Since existing 5.x RELEASE is for early adopter, I think marking them,
that ports depend directly on devel/libgnugetopt,  BROKEN for
500000 < OSVERSION < 502104 is enough.

BROKEN=	update your OS, it is outdated.
