Oops! Farid Zaripov reported that the change broke existing scripts,
because it requires --locate-root as an option and no longer accepts a
bare locate-root path.
I've added the optional bare locate-root back in, while still accepting
the --locate-root option form. That preserves existing scripts, yet
allows use of the new form if desired. Also added detection of unknown
command line options.
Thanks to Farid for reporting this regression. He also reported another
problem which I'll fix as soon as he can get me a test case.
