I tried that and it helps. The getopt missing references are gone. There
just remains a missing _link reference that I cannot resolve. Here's
what I did after editing private.h to minimise the error messages and
adding my_getopt:

cl zic.c scheck.c ialloc.c my_getopt.c

There are warnings that I don't understand. The present C syntax with
split function arguments was entirely new to me. Looks a bit like Pascal.

I searched all files for "_link" but could only find it in zic.obj, not
in any of the source files. Where can I get that unused function from?
And why do I need to? Can I just define my own _link() { } ?
