| The imported popt sources have seen little maintenance, and there might  
| be a lot of bugs lurking that have been fixed upstream. Systems with rpm
| already have the library anyway. Others can find it here:
|   http://rpm5.org/files/popt/
| Dan Nicholson (2):
|   Move popt to subdirectory and make a convenience library of it

I don't think I actually ever saw this first patch.  Did it make it to
the list or did it disappear in the spam/size filter?

|   Optionally use an external popt library

This makes sense.

(I'd somewhat like us to move off popt and over to glib, but that
doesn't mean we can't fix bugs in the meantime.
