posix_openpt.patch

This patch fixes ddd to use the pts(4) driver instead of the legacy pty(4) driver.  However, it still doesn't work for me when I try to use it and just hangs talking to gdb, so it may be better to remove the port if it can't be made to work.

Patch does not apply.  Looks like all tabs were replaced by spaces.

Since the port doesn't work anyway, it's probably better to just remove it instead.
