Because you are using an old tree. D^HRecent ones, like the patchkit
used by RHEL, have xencons=xvc as the default (for very good reasons).
Read this for details:
This is trivial to fix in login since adding xvc0 to securetty has no
side effects or security implications, but I am not sure about how
it can be fixed in your package because if the kernel does not have
xvc0 then the getty will die and init will complain.
 And while you are fixing this, please add hvc0 as well...
