    sim: Check known getopt definition existence
    Clang generates a warning if there is a function declaration/definition
    with zero arguments.  Such declarations/definitions without a prototype (an
    argument list) are deprecated forms of indefinite arguments
    ("-Wdeprecated-non-prototype").  On the default configuration, it causes a
    build failure (unless "--disable-werror" is specified).
    include/getopt.h defines some getopt function definitions but one of them
    has a form "extern int getopt ();".  If this form is selected in
    include/getopt.h, Clang generates a warning and the build fails by default.
    In really old environments, this getopt definition with no arguments is
    necessary (because the definition may change between environments).
    However, this definition is now a cause of problems on modern environments.
    A good news is, this definition is not always selected (e.g. if used by
    binutils/*.c).  This is because configuration scripts of binutils, gas,
    gprof and ld tries to find known definition of getopt function is used and
    defines HAVE_DECL_GETOPT macro.  If this macro is defined when getopt.h is
    included, a good form of getopt is used and Clang won't generate warnings.
    This commit adds a modified portion of ld/ to find the known
    getopt definition.  If we could find one (and we *will* in most modern
    environments), we don't need to rely on the deprecated definition.
