Sorry for following up late.
Did you check whether this test (system libopts >= tarball libopts) is sufficient? Or is it documented that files autogened by autogen X can safely be used with libopts X, X+1, etc?

I am not completely sure but I think only these two scenarios are safe:
a) use prebuilt autogened files to link statically against tarball included libopts tearoff
b) Use locally installed autogen to regenerate everything and link against locally installed libopts
