It looks like it's already "console" in current and netbsd-1-6, just not in
*netbsd-1-5*, so it didn't make it into NetBSD 1.5.3.

I don't know for sure if there is going to be a NetBSD 1.5.4, but I will
request that revision 1.12 of "etc/etc.i386/ttys" be pulled up to netbsd-1-5,
and close this, when it is.
