I have worked through the problem with /dev/pts,
After seeing a post that I should have /lib/{firmware,udev/devices/pts} I 
checked that and found that the pts directory was missing but the others were 
indeed there.  After creating the pts directory it is now working.  Don't 
know why it didn't get created, I checked my script for udev and 
install -dv /lib/{firmware,udev/devices/pts was there and correct. 

I will now check the rest of the system for correctness/working.  After which  
I will then attempt to get LFS-7.0 working from lvm.

Thanks for all your support.
