Hi to all. Sorry for the late response.

I am Elia Pinto, a popt/rpm5 comantainer. From many years popt use
xcalloc that already catch these issue. FWIW, very recently popt (and
rpm5) was analyzed by coverity thanks to Jeff Johnson (in CC) (Jun 24,
2013)  - 0.00 Defect Density for popt. What is more the internal test
suite permit popt to cover  98% of its code, last time i checked,
thanks to the API sanity checker

Best Regards
