I figured it out. The culprit is screen, which seems to do it's own
permissions handling on ptys, and the fact that when I built it, I was
in the chroot on a Fedora system, where tty is group 5. It looks like
you can work around this with --with-pty-group=tty. Don't know if
that's a candidate for the BLFS book or not.
