But the compiler I have available isn't smart enough to decide...
I'm quite shure that the getopt-code included in libc that comes
with the gcc335b5-compiler is good enough for SANE.

What's the trigger for the compiler to decide?

in sane-backends/lib/getopt.c getWe have:

#if !defined _LIBC && defined __GLIBC__ && __GLIBC__ >= 2
# include <gnu-versions.h>
#  define ELIDE_CODE
# endif

#ifndef ELIDE_CODE

but _GNU_GETOPT_INTERFACE_VERSION isn't defined in
the headers that come with my compiler.
Should it? and when yes where?
