As of 5.1 (the most recent source tree I have at hand), if init finds
/dev/console missing, it forks a process to run ./sh ./MAKEDEV -MM init
(in /dev/), or if ./MAKEDEV isn't executable then /etc/MAKEDEV.  Exit
code 11 means that even after running that, /dev/console still doesn't
exist.  You may want to check the source for the version you're using
to see if it's true there too.

If the NFS server (unicorn, in your case) is unixy enough, you may be
able to cd to /data/home/exports/rtvax/dev and run ./MAKEDEV there.
I'd suggest "./MAKEDEV std", which should at least provide console.

That question I'm not competent to answer.
