i can't seem to get a strace on it (it blocks at 'getdents(3, '), but it
i assume it's looking for ptys in /dev/ptys/ and not finding any (since mk
is still 2.0).

2.9.5-3 should not have a problem allocating ptys on any system, since it uses the getpt() function, which properly falls back to BSD-style ptys if UNIX98-style ptys are not available.
