That's entirely possible -- I've not been able to keep track
What I did was that I installed the 1.6.2_RC2 snapshot from
releng.netbsd.org, and I ended up with the above. I think this
bug should be squished before we release 1.6.2.
Now, I've taken a look at the source and can't really find
anything in etc/etc.i386/MAKEDEV which does the wrong thing, but
perhaps the problem is elsewhere?
