I don't use mgetty, because I don't need the extra features and getty
works fine, if you set your modem up correctly. This is from a Zoom:

B1 E0 L1 M0 N1 Q1 T V1 W1 X4 Y0 &C1 &D3 &G0 &J0 &K3 &Q5 &R1 &S1 &T5 &X0 
S00:001 S02:043 S06:002 S07:050 S08:002 S09:006 S10:014 S11:095 S12:050 S18:000
S36:007 S37:000 S40:168 S41:195 S46:138 S95:000 


ttyd1   "/usr/libexec/getty std.38400"  unknown on insecure

Works for dial-in and out, ppp in and out and uucp in and out. Note
that USR's need a different &D? setting (&D2, I think.)
