You haven't told us you either
1) have LKM=YES in /etc/rc.conf and put into your /etc/lkm.conf the line:
	/usr/lkm/ptyfs.o - - - - BEFOREMOUNT
2) you manually modloaded it, or
3) you added "file-system PTYFS" into your kernel config before building.

Which did you do?
If you did number 1 or 3, you can add the following line to your /etc/fstab:
	ptyfs /dev/pts ptyfs rw 0 0
