Ngetty is a daemon that starts login sessions on virtual console
terminals, on demand.  It is a good replacement for all those getty
processes started from init that, most of the time, are only taking
up memory.  Since it is compiled statically with dietlibc, the ngetty
binary size is only about 2k and uses considerably less memory than a
usual getty implementations.
