pty for Linux

Has anyone had a go at porting Dan Bernstein's "pty" program to Linux?
The latest I found was Oct 1990, in the comp.unix.sources archives, and
it's pretty out-of-date.  There were a _LOT_ of configuration options,
and it wasn't at all clear to me how best to handle them for a Debian

I know I could use expect to get somewhat similar behavior, but I'd
prefer to use pty if possible as it's simpler and lighter-weight (as far
as I can tell).

Anyone ported pty to Linux, or thinking of packaging it for Debian?
