I don't understand why you see the error, but it comes from gnulib.
Is gnulib/lib/libgnu.a getting built and does it contain the
rpl_getopt symbol?  You shouldn't need that symbol though, because
getopt should be defined in glibc.  Maybe you don't have the libc6-dev
package installed?

hivex doesn't depend on libguestfs.
