Import the argp-1.3 argument functionality - this package is the
argp-standalone functionality from FreeBSD ports.

	Argp is an interface for parsing unix-style argument vectors.

	Argp provides features unavailable in the more commonly used getopt
	interface.  These features include automatically producing output in
	response to the `--help' and `--version' options, as described in the
	GNU coding standards.  Using argp makes it less likely that
	programmers will neglect to implement these additional options or keep
	them up to date.

	Argp also provides the ability to merge several independently defined
	option parsers into one, mediating conflicts between them and making
	the result appear seamless.  A library can export an argp option
	parser that user programs might employ in conjunction with their own
	option parsers, resulting in less work for the user programs.  Some
	programs may use only argument parsers exported by libraries, thereby
	achieving consistent and efficient option-parsing for abstractions
	implemented by the libraries.

	The header file <argp.h> should be included to use argp.
