Ok, I'll try that. But what about the 'console' entry ? It also references
a baud rate of 9600. Will it render the console 'unsecure' if I comment it
out ?

Good Thing (tm) :-)

Ok, I must admit I'm dumb - You may call me M.S. if you like >:->
I have SUPed 'allsrc', compiled config and did NOT install it...

By the way, what about this 'troff dumps core when compiled with -O' ? I
am not that proficient with the BSD Makefile mechanisms, but isn't it
possible to create a special rule somewhere in the System Makefiles or the
GNU roff Makefiles to compile the pertaining parts without optimization ?
