Thanks very much to both you and Alan. You were exactly right. The version
of /sbin/init on our filesystem was quite old (2 years old). I grabbed the tar
ball of the newest version, and using this version (without the "#if 0" lines)
works just fine because it sets up the console properly.

Thanks again.
