pty(4) discrepancy

There's a small error in either the GENERIC config file or the pty(4) man
page in the amount of ptys that OpenBSD allocates.  The GENERIC config
(src/sys/conf/GENERIC) allocates 64, but the man page claims to allocate
32.  I'd assume that the generic kernel is correct in allocating 64, since
it's scrutinized much more than the pty(4) man page.  Below is a diff
(against 3.0 stable) for the man page.
