you must have forgotten the terminal stuff in make menuconfig. go back and recompile or just install a kernel image.

You may want to check that you have these options enabled in your kernel configuration:
Device Drivers --> Character devices --> Unix98 PTY Support
File systems --> Pseudo filesystems --> /dev/pts
