| Wow, that's too bad. Two things should get fixed here:
| 1. Change pkg.m4 to use the "correct" syntax with = separating the
| long option from it's value. That won't help much immediately since
| this has already been distributed into many releases.

I don't really think the version with = is more correct than the other.
popt is buggy and should accept both.
