No. Here is the transcript:

Since I'm in a special case of cross-compilation (identity: compiling
for NetBSD-2.0.2 i386 on a NetBSD-2.0.2 i386), the toolchain is
generated and, AFAIU, my host /etc should not be considered at all,
whatever might be in it (Am I wrong?).

And yes, MAKEDEV will probably fail, since as reported by me
previously, etc/Makefile tries to create MAKEDEV in _srcdir_ and not
in obj dir (if I read correctly the Makefile):

#	$NetBSD: Makefile,v 2004/07/28 21:35:29 jmc Exp $
	    awk -f ${.CURDIR}/MAKEDEV.awk ${.CURDIR}/MAKEDEV.tmpl > ${.TARGET}

where, IMHO, it should be:
