The patch was from our Gentoo/FreeBSD folks, IIRC because blinding using
'#include <pty.h>' lead to compile failures. One of the Gentoo
development practices is to try and make patches that are generally
applicable, and not just applied for certain cases (eg no custom patch
that's only applied on ppc).
