you don't need MAKEDEV, if you have got a running netbsd just copy the
/dev-entries to your cf-card
since then i had no /dev/console not found error message
but i have 2 problems:

1. i can only boot if i choose to save the console output to file (in
hpcboot.exe) but that's not a real problem

2. i need a rootpassword even if theres no rootpassword set
in passwd and master.passwd there's a "root::0...." entry
but the system wants it anyway
someone told me to rebuild the kernel with "INSECURE" it's also needed to
run x
but i can't crossbuild on my system because it freezes everytime i build
