very small, efficient, console-only getty and login
fgetty is a small, efficient, console-only getty for Linux. It is derived
from mingetty but hacked until it would link against diet libc to produce
the smallest memory footprint possible for a simple yet complete getty.
fgetty includes a login program that supports the checkpassword
authentication interface, and also a checkpassword program that uses the
standard C library interface to passwd and shadow.
This is actually a mingetty without the printfs.
Why? Because then you can link it against dietlibc
Actually, diet libc now supports printf, but not using it makes binaries
The difference is remarkable:

fgetty for Debian
The login and login2 programs from the fgetty package are installed as
fgetty-login and fgetty-login2 into /bin/. fgetty is changed to run
/bin/fgetty-login instead of /bin/login, and fgetty-login is changed
to run /bin/fgetty-login2 instead of /bin/login2.
By default fgetty-login uses /bin/checkpassword (provided by this package)
to authenticate a user, but,
checkpassword - check a password
checkpassword reads descriptor 3 through end of file and then
closes descriptor 3. There must be at most 512 bytes of data
before end of file.
The information supplied on descriptor 3 is a login name ter�
