            Bug ID: 13596
           Summary: traceroute in busybox 1.33.0 is broken: ``traceroute:
                    NO OPT x!''
           Product: Busybox
           Version: 1.33.x
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Networking
          Assignee: unassigned at busybox.net
          Reporter: mss at tutanota.de
                CC: busybox-cvs at busybox.net
  Target Milestone: ---

Created attachment 8781
  --> https://bugs.busybox.net/attachment.cgi?id=8781&action=edit
busybox 1.33.0 configuration.

`traceroute` from BusyBox 1.33.0 built on a musl 1.2.1 + gcc 10.2.0 x86_64 host
prints ``traceroute: NO OPT x!'' with any or no flags specified to it.


# busybox traceroute
traceroute: NO OPT x!

# busybox traceroute google.com
traceroute: NO OPT x!


After hitting this error, I tried building and testing traceroute from 1.32.1
and saw no problems. Next, I created patches from commits affecting
``traceroute.c'' between 1.32.1 and 1.33.0, reverted them one by one and the
problem disappeared once i reverted:
``traceroute: fix --help text'' (a4c5cb2335dc3ef2fd21560c2205abf1e484e82a)

I have attached the .config as requested.

Thank you,
mss.
