That's what I do now (patches for __progname). Unfortunately some linux distributions forcing __progname, even Owl: in Owl's popa3d we have a #ifdef, which really helps. #ifdef HAVE_PROGNAME extern char *__progname; #define progname __progname http://cvsweb.openwall.com/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/Owl/packages/popa3d/popa3d/startup.c?rev=1.4;content-type=text%2Fplain but for Owl's msulogin we need a patch for musl: http://cvsweb.openwall.com/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/Owl/packages/msulogin/msulogin/sulogin.c?rev=1.4;content-type=text%2Fplain Daniel
