"no more ptys" problem (chap 6 after glibc build)

I'm a fairly experienced LFS user but it's been 6 months since my last
build. I'm running into the no more ptys problem.
I've verified that all of the steps at the beginning of Chap 6 have been
followed and the devpts mount is there. I've also followed every tip I
could find in wiki.linuxfromscratch.org
I'm building the system from the LFS 6.0 boot disc using the 6.0 stable
text. The specific problem I get is when I do the expect on pg 123 at
the beginning of the binutils pass.
Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? I know I built it fine
using version 5 of the book a year ago but I have been running into one
problem after another. I initially started building it with Slack 10.1
but gave up after running into serious issues compiling glibc in chap 5
with nptl. I know I could've reverted to linuxthreads but thought maybe
the boot cd would be a cleaner host system. It seems to work well
except for this issue.
Thanks for any help.
