getopt_long not found, even though it is present

Assume we are on a system which does have /usr/local/include/getopt.h,
and support for getopt_long, but where getopt_long is _not_ in libc.

Our configure then diagnoses

  #define HAVE_GETOPT_H 1
  /* #undef HAVE_GETOPT_LONG */

which leads a compilation error for tools/wrc/wrc.c which includes
"wine/port.h" and <getopt.h>, for _both_ define struct option.

As far as I can see, the problem here is that in tools/wrc/wrc.c we
check for the presence of HAVE_GETOPT_H, while in wine/port.h we check

The patch below is one way to fix this problem, another way would be to
move the #inclusion of <getopt.h> from individual files to wine/port.h.

Yet another option would be the hack autoconf to try linking libgnugetopt
when looking for getopt_long, but I don't know how to hack this into

How should we resolve this?
