yes.  I'm currently using mgetty...

As posted, probably not.  Though if you are running an up to date
netbsd with the VMIN stuff it will be closer.  Much of the code
expects SysV semantics whereby a SIGALRM will interrupt a read.
You have to replace calls to signal with your own routine that calls
sigaction with a no restart flag.  I could dig up diffs if you need
them.  I also added a modemcap file to allow mgetty to drive two
completely different modems.  Generally it seems to work well.
