Description

The 'name' field should be a 'const char *', but is actually a 'char *'

This leads to compiler warnings, for example when compiling the openconnect VPN client:

main.c:102: warning: initialization discards qualifiers from pointer target type
main.c:103: warning: initialization discards qualifiers from pointer target type
main.c:104: warning: initialization discards qualifiers from pointer target type
main.c:105: warning: initialization discards qualifiers from pointer target type

...etc.

Even the example code in the Solaris 11 'getopt_long' man page (which seems to be absent from OpenIndiana) fails to compile cleanly. Said man page also explicitly states that the field is of type 'const char *', which is false there too.
