If the two functions are exactly the same (I think they are), this
would be acceptable. There are two weak reasons to use getpt instead:
(i) posix_openpt isn't documented in the glibc manual (but I've raised
a bug for this), and (ii) posix_openpt has an ugly name. There is
probably not a strong need for it but I would use it if it were there.
