Or just not test SIGWINCH if there's no TTY. I mean, we know ours
works, right? (That reeks of hubris, of course. And, anyway, pkgsrc
oughtn't necessarily be NetBSD-dependent. Cf, Zoularis.)

I'm not sure that just making the problem disappear means things
are actually working right. Feeding a program that wants a TTY
/dev/null isn't the same thing as feeding it a TTY, I don't think.

But I'm speaking without having looked at any of the code involved,
much less how we implement SIGWINCH, so hopefully someone with more
of a clue will comment.
