Not related, but I tried to get gnokii (http://www.gnokii.org/) working
under 1.5 Alpha. After hacking the configure script and other things, it
compiled OK - but it doesn't work. It seems gnokii uses a separate thread
for serial port I/O and this thread never gets as far as open()ing the tty
device. I was using unproven-pthreads (because the other thread package
did not configure under 1.5).
