I've just encountered the same behaviour. gpg needs /dev/tty but returns
"No such device or address" and a quick `ls -la | grep tty` doesn't
show it. devfs is mounted on /dev as Markus showed. But then:

`mknod /dev/tty c 5 0`
mknod: 'dev/tty': File exists

`ls -l /dev/tty`
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 0, 12 17 feb 18:06 /dev/tty

`file /dev/tty`
/dev/tty: character special (0/12)

But, ehm again:

`cat /dev/tty`
cat: /dev/tty: No such device or address

`echo foo > /dev/tty`
-bash: /dev/tty: No such device or address

I really don't know what to say, other than on linux it's (5/0) instead
of (0/12).

This is a quite fresh qemu installation. I can give you access to this
one, either directly providing the image or via ssh.
