"write" and tty device perms

Util-linux installs the write program sgid to the tty group. In order to
use this program, however, /etc/login.defs needs one modification.

TTYPERM         0600
needs to be
TTYPERM         0620

Since we already sed login.defs during its installation, I propose
adding this to the sed. Any objections?
