but good luck - Yaakov is not keen on fixing these type issues:

Nevertheless he fixed my problem, and very quickly too; I was linking with -static, removing that meant that -lpopt works as expected without having libpopt.a available.  I have no idea why I had -static on the linker line, I don't normally use static links and can't remember putting it there, I must have done so for some reason at some point though.

I was wondering why I couldn't find any evidence of anyone else having this problem on the Internet, I couldn't believe I was the only person linking against popt in the world.  Turns out I might be the only idiot though :)

Thanks Steven and Yaakov.
