In the end I decided not to mess with it, i.e. leave things as they
are.  It's easier to make kermit conform to cu/tip/uucp than the other
way around.  If you need kermit you can get a NetBSD version of
5A(189) from
(or something like that).

There's also a beta version of 5A(190) around, for the adventurous.
