More like braindead SunOS include files.
(incomplete might be a nicer word, but I have some bad childhood memories
 of this ... and optarg wasn't the only thing missing :)

Many other (more current) c libraries define this in their standard
headers, which is probably why it was missed.

I believe the proper procedure is to make a diff -u of what you needed to
change to get all of it to compile and send that to samba-patches. Unless
of course you get feedback from someone with cvs access that they made the 
change already.
