ok, so i'm building Cnews CR.G on NetBSD-1.1/sun3.

well, during the regression tests it uses /usr/bin/compress to do
some stuff.

/usr/bin/compress is complaining that /dev/stdin doesn't exist.

i looked at the MAKEDEV's for some of the i386 stuff, and well, it
put's it at major 22.

however, on the sun3 kernel, major 22 is a framebuffer.

ah, so, what, or should, i set /dev/std{in,out,err} to?
