System: NetBSD 1.0A NetBSD 1.0A (ORCHARD) #2: Mon Sep 25 23:26:59 EDT 1995 i386

	the pppd source contains an idle-timeout feature which needs 
	an ioctl to support; this feature is under #ifdef _linux_.
	NetBSD appears to support this ioctl, so the #ifdef's should go..

	read source.
	s/_+linux_+/PPPIOCGIDLE/, more or less.
