I attach fix for --help output. I replaced --NAME... with -NAME and add some example. getopt parse -- as a end of options and rest of line is not parsed.


Surely this is outright wrong.  Or if you do have a getopt that acts
that way, the bug is that we are using it rather than one that acts
the way we want.

Ah, sorry it really does not work.

However, I get following error on Solaris:

bash-3.2$ /usr/postgres/8.2/bin/postgres -D /tmp/db --share_buffers=16000
/usr/postgres/8.2/bin/postgres: illegal option -- share_buffers=16000
Try "postgres --help" for more information.

but following command works fine:

/usr/postgres/8.2/bin/postgres -D /tmp/db -c shared_buffers=16000


By my opinion problem is in getopt which interprets -- as a end of options list.

See http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/basedefs/xbd_chap12.html#tag_12_02
Guideline 10

It maybe work on linux but I think it is not portable solution.
