The -current netbsd/vax miniroot.fs lack /dev/ra[0-9]* special files, making
installation impossible ... at least under simh emulator. And there is no
MAKEDEV script, to manually add them.

rump_ffs: "miniroot.fs" is a non-resolved or relative path.
rump_ffs: using "/home/njoly/miniroot.fs" instead.
njoly@lynche [~]> ls -l /mnt/dev/ra[0-9]*
zsh: no matches found: /mnt/dev/ra[0-9]*
njoly@lynche [~]> ls -l /mnt/dev/MAKEDEV*
zsh: no matches found: /mnt/dev/MAKEDEV*

No problem with the 5.1 version i checked, it has all the needed files.
Try to install -current netbsd/vax under simh.
