do you have a build recipe for iptables to share ?
i was not able to build it on sabotage (didn't put much effort into it, 
though), and it looks like a kernel header issue.
so please tell us additionally which kernel headers you used and which 
iptables version.


as for the getopt issue, the cause is likely that iptables assumes GNU 
they should do a configure check for this and if GNU getopt behaviour is 
not detected, use a gnulib style replacement function instead of the 
libc one.
