The problem is that you don't have the PTS filesystem mounted. This should 
normally be done by the mountvirtfs init script (package initscripts). Stable 
doesn't have this script since it was pretty useless back when stable was 
born, so I guess you'll have to see how it works or try and install it along 
with its dependencies.

The relevant output of mount is:
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)

devfs should theoretically handle the rest (if you have devfsd running).
