This question is not very clear. Opening a pty is strictly neccessary
only on the server, and libssh2 is so far only a client library.

An SSH client which also handles terminal emulation (see how this is
again about terminal emulators, and that you probably could benefit
very much from studying terminals and terminal emulators..) has no
need for a pty since the terminal emulation is contained completely
within the SSH client itself. This would be the case on systems where
the kernel does not support terminals. I don't know if this is the
case for iPhone OS.

If you need to ask questions about terminals and terminal emulation
on iPhone OS then you must find a better place than the libssh2
mailing list.
