	can anybody tell me how to upgrade just this one file:
	devel/popt?  i tried various forms up portupgrade.  zip.

	i'm interested in anything that is an improvment on old getopt().
	that said, i remember fu==ooling around w ith doing things the 
	=long= way. having an "#include <stdopt.h>"  with those few dozen
	lines of code hidden away would be a ++win.


	PS: we do have ots; it's in textproc.  check it out, guys.  seems
	    to work out/box.

	pps:: it is time for a C2012 or the like...
