(cc'd to the greenstone list)

we currently only have access to a Mac OS X 10.1 box, so haven't
encountered this before. The problem is that mg is fairly old - when
it was written many systems didn't have complete C standard functions
so mg includes it own versions of these. However, our build process
should detect this...
Greenstone 2.39 (due out soon) will be tested on OS X 10.2.

Anyway, since your system has a perfectly functional getopt() function
installed, you could just try moving the mg one out of the way, by
renaming or deleting the file gsdl/packages/mg/lib/getopt.h.
Hopefully everything should compile smoothly after that.
