Yes, NetBSD was ok there - sorry if I implied otherwise, I was talking
about a portable login(1). The getpass buffer change was needed for
SunOS,IRIX etc. I also changed it to use posix sigprocmask() etc.
The changes for NetBSD were in login itself and the same for everyone
- setting up the prompt to include the challenge and for pwcheck to
deal with the response.
