Apparently it doesn’t: http://hydra.nixos.org/build/327435 .

I’ve checked this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ uname -rs
$ grep forkpty /usr/include/*.h
/usr/include/libutil.h:int      forkpty(int *_amaster, char *_name,
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

But the build farm uses FreeBSD 7.2, where things could be different.
