Bug#665461: makedev.postinst for GNU/kFreeBSD

Package: makedev
Version: 2.3.1-90
Severity: serious
User: debian-bsd@lists.debian.org

The postinst script is defective for GNU/kFreeBSD.
Virtual terminals are named "/dev/ttyv[0-9]*" for
that port. The present script is unable to complete
the postinst configuration since "/dev/tty[0-9]*"
are rightfully missing.

The call to MAKEDEV for creation of "/dev/tty?"
is declined with an ugly message, pointing at
non-Linux filesystems. This is harmless.

Serious is the fact that

   chmod g-r,o= /dev/tty[0-9]*

is failing, thus aborting the script.
