Hi Bdale,

I filed this one. It's important because the new ftape packages
rely on makedev (once it's there) for creating the devices instead of
kludging around with its own MAKEDEV.ftape script. Unfortunately I
quoted the devices.txt file in my first important bug report. In this
case it's wrong because I checked the ftape utility sources (which I
maintain) and they use the devices which I mentioned in my bug report.

What's the railroad to me ?
I never go to see
Where it ends.
It fills a few hollows,
And makes banks for the swallows, 
It sets the sand a-blowing,
And the blackberries a-growing.
                      (Henry David Thoreau)
