Re: postinstall anomaly

Yeah, the patch looks good. If noone else gets to it during the day, I'll commit it this evening.

With sources updated as of last night, postinstall seems to be confused
about whether or not makedev is successful.

First, it reports

        makedev check:
                /tmp/_postinstall.22840.0/MAKEDEV != ///dev/MAKEDEV

But later on, it claims that makedev was successful:

        postinstall checks passed: bluetooth ddbonpanic defaults dhcpcd
        envsys gid hosts iscsi makedev motd named pam periodic pf postfix
        ssh wscons x11 uid varrwho
        postinstall checks failed: mtree rc obsolete

And, when asked to fix makedev, it does so:

        {104} /build/netbsd-local/src/usr.sbin/postinstall/postinstall -s
        ./src -d / fix makedev mtree rc obsolete
        Source directory: ./src
        Target directory: /
        makedev fix:
                Copied /tmp/_postinstall.22949.0/MAKEDEV to /dev/MAKEDEV

Yep. I noticed it too ... and posted a patch for review on
tech-toolchain@ ML.


Freel free to commit it if this ok, i'm mostly offline for a few days.
