| I checked my config last night. It already had COMPAT_43 defined in it.

| went away.
| Further investigation showed that compat/common/tty_43.c, kern/tty.c and
| kern/tty_pty.c all contain code that is conditional on COMPAT_OLDTTY which
| is defined in sys/tty.h if COMPAT_43 is defined. However, since none of
| the above files include the new opt_compat_43.h they don't get compiled
| I think sys/tty.h should #include the new opt_compat_43.h as it does the
| other opt_compat_... include files.
Thanks, I'll do that.
