 From memory, the option disappeared a few months ago, so any recent
kernel ought to support /dev/pts.

 You are in chapter 6 ?  For the *stable* book (6.1.1), /dev/pts and
/dev/shm are mounted at the end of section 6.8.2.  If you interrupt
the build and exit chroot, that part (6.8.2) has to be repeated.
