Justin Azoff commented on BIT-1436:

bro-cut needs to use getopt_long to add support for --help back in.

I see that bro ships with src/bsd-getopt-long.c for platforms that do not have it.. does anyone know the history behind this?  I'm not sure if this should be imported into the bro-cut repository as well, or just assume that it is already present on all supported platforms.

in the meantime I will at least get the underlying issue fixed.
