It probably won't be added anymore to FreeBSD 4.x - I'm not sure what the 
status of ttyname_r of 5.x is because the configure check thinks it exists, 
but compilation issues a warning "implicit declaration of ttyname_r" (but

Yes, this works fine, thanks! One other thing: The included assuan bits have 
several problems on FreeBSD, which have all been ironed out by now (we and 
Werner actually ironed them out on gpa-devel, perhaps you remember)  - could 
you consider updating the assuan import or perhaps just depend on the 
separate libassuan distribution?
