Yes, but they build out of the box.

However, what Dave wrote still applies.  If you run an ssh client, it
does not try to create a pty.  The pty creation occurs solely on the
server side.

The difference may be that the client requests a pty, while the other
client doesn't   This can be a result of different ssh config settings.
Check you ~/.ssh/config file.
