oh. either something went wrong, or your makedev is very old :
makedev (1.6-17) unstable; urgency=low

  * close bug 6541 (missing audio device) : not reproduceable 
  * generate random and urandom, if missing (bug #12134)
  * enabled makedev to create more sg* and sr* devices (bug #12158)
  * changed doubletalkt to dtlk as requested
  * sd[a-h]16 removed (bug, sda16 = sdb, scsi only supports 15
