C-Kermit 8.0.211, Linux, and PTY's
I've compiled C-Kermit 8.0.211 on Gentoo Linux 2004.2. Everything on it
works well except for PTY support. I am unable to connect to anything with
the SSH, PTY, or SET HOST /PTY commands through SSH or an external telnet
client. The commands simply return with no error.
I had this same problem after compiling C-Kermit 8.0.(209 or 211) on SuSE
9.1. I snooped around and fixed it.
I cannot for the life of me remember what I did. Is any of this ringing a
bell for anyone?

To quote Emily Litella, "Nevermind."
I dug around in the C-Kermit makefile a bit and found the -DHAVE_PTMX flag.
It was set on the default linux target but not on the variant (Kerberos +
PAM + Shadow + ZLIB + OpenSSL) that I was using. Tweaked that, and
everything worked ok.
