"name" member of "struct option" should be const
getopt.h we define
struct option, which has a
char *name member. On other platforms (e.g., modern Linux distributions, Mac OS X), this is actually
const char *name. We should make our definition
const as well, for better compatibility.

I tested this in a bulk build.
Executive summary is no regressions caused by the change, but it did fix one build (devel/kyua).
