I've just installed a FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE and I need a FreeBSD 5.4-RELEASE chroot to build something in it (hw shortage). All nice and dandy, until I hit a /dev problem:

# svn up

Clearly, all those years of Linux chroot-ing have affected my brain, but Google isn't very helpful either. :) Could someone, please, hint me about what I'm doing wrong?

mount a devfs instance to create the devices (see mount_devfs) instead of trying to mknod them by hand.
