System: NetBSD basis 1.5.3_ALPHA NetBSD 1.5.3_ALPHA (BASIS) #1: Thu Nov 02 15:25:10 MEST 2001 root@lkegw:/amd/lwle5.radiologie/usr/src-1.5/sys/arch/i386/compile/BASIS i386

	After recent import of 'Add Mylex DACC960, CAC-EISA, and I2O
	block/SCSI drivers.' into the 1.5 branch

	1. etc/etc.i386/MAKEDEV misses the appropriate ld* entries
	   instead of ca*

	2. The kernel doesn't find a boot device and hangs up.

	Compile a recent 1.5 GENERIC kernel and try to boot from a
	compaq array controller
