OpenBSD solves gnu reset option in this way:

	 * XXX Some GNU programs (like cvs) set optind to 0 instead of
	 * XXX using optreset.  Work around this braindamage.
	if (optind == 0)
		optind = optreset = 1;;content-type=text%2Fplain

So using the gnu reset (optind == 0) and BSD optreset should not be so
