Yes you are right. The reference I read earlier was that OSX 10.3
does not have support for posix grantpt... Maybe things have
change in OSX a lot since 10.3.

What do you mean by "BSD branch"?

Yes, I see for example:

ppc-osx3:~/osx $ ls /dev/ptyq*
/dev/ptyq0 /dev/ptyq3 /dev/ptyq6 /dev/ptyq9 /dev/ptyqc /dev/ptyqf
/dev/ptyq1 /dev/ptyq4 /dev/ptyq7 /dev/ptyqa /dev/ptyqd
/dev/ptyq2 /dev/ptyq5 /dev/ptyq8 /dev/ptyqb /dev/ptyqe
ppc-osx3:~/osx $

But when I try to build clef I get:

ppc-osx3:~/osx/ $ make
gcc ./edible.o
./src/lib -L/usr/lib -lspad  -lc -o
ld: warning table of contents of library:
src/lib/libspad.a not sorted slower link editing will result (use the
ranlib(1) -s option)
ld: Undefined symbols:


These are all pty external routines.

Maybe it is just that I don't understand that MAC library setup.

Any ideas?
