Slackware 14, I still got xxgdb: all ptys in use

In Slackware64 14, I still got the error message when running xxgdb:

xxgdb: all ptys in use

It seems even with the patch of xxgdb-1.12-debian-pty.patch.xz in the stock build scripts, it does not work in Slackware.

I developed a separate patch which use the posix calls.  With the patch and xxgdb-1.12-debian-pty.patch.xz removed, I got a working xxgdb.

The patch could be downloaded here: xxgdb-pty.patch.xz.
