carrier detect was enabled by default on the modem ports.
This makes things link incoming gettys behave normally.

if you want to use them and there's no carrier apparent, you
have to get them 'stty clocal'd until there is a carrier.

An example of how to do that is:
	sleep 1000 < /dev/tty00 &
	stty -f /dev/tty00 clocal
	tip foo				# foo uses /dev/tty00
when there's carrier:
	stty -f /dev/tty00 -clocal
	kill the sleep
