Login Shell on Serial port


I'm trying to get gnumach to start a login shell on the serial port.

I have uncommented the line in /etc/ttys that reads:
com0   "/libexec/getty 9600"      dialup     on    secure

On reboot, runsystem segfaulted with the following error:
/libexec/runsystem: line 140:      90 Segmentation fault    ${RUNTTYS}

I have tried changing dialup to vt100 with the same results.  From
gnumach's startup messages, it appear as though my serial port at com0
is detected fine and the link works fine because grub is properly
putting itself onto the serial port during boot up.

Has anyone run into this problem before?
