Clarification of www.debian.org/releases/testing/i386/apds03.html.en needed

On a Debian Jessie system I am trying install Debian Jessie to another partition using the instructions in "D.3. Installing Debian GNU/Linux from a Unix/Linux System".

"D.3.4.1. Create device files" describes creation of device files but makes no mention of udev for current systems.

It also states
<begin quote>
 A few of the available options are:

install the makedev package, and create a default set of static device files using (after chrooting)

    # apt install makedev
    # mount none /proc -t proc
    # cd /dev
    # MAKEDEV generic

    manually create only specific device files using MAKEDEV
</end quote>

There is definition of "MAKEDEV".

This is true for both stable and testing.
Clarification please.
