You wanted a cleaner solution than the current, but it's no longer blocking anything.

Unfortunately the ticket doesn't mention how it was worked around previously...

Attached a patch for addattr, adapted from rc code.

Applied in hrev36783. One could probably rewrite the snippets where progname is used to remember the first parameter passed to main(), that should also be the program name.

Makes sense; as that is more portable, anyway, it should be the preferred way for all build tools.
