unfortunately not: those devices are supposed to be created by
/usr/sbin/mkpts, as described in getpty(3).  I have no idea why this
doesn't happen, but you'll have to do it manually as root, using mknod:

# cd /dev/pts
# mknod <N> c 15 <N>
# chmod 620 <N>
# chown <user> sys

for all missing N (I've created them up to 127).
