hmm, i have not tried devfs yet, but it should work.

if you don't want to use devfs, you can simply edit the login sources,
works for me. i use shadow's login and it says

	Unable to change tty /dev/ttyX: Read-only file system

if that's your problem, i'd suggest this:
login tries to change the owner/permissions of the device file and
exits if that fails. by commenting out the exit(1); in libmisc/chowntty.c,
ca. line 115, you will still get the error msg, but will be able
to login.
