Good news, I found a workaround to make it build with unmodified
poudriere again:

| .if ${POUDRIERE_NAME:Mpoudriere*}
| build-depends: poudriere-ensure-linux-devfs
| poudriere-ensure-linux-devfs: .PHONY
|         [ -c ${LINUXBASE}/dev/null ] || ${LN} -sf /dev ${LINUXBASE}/
| .endif

For now, I'll just add that snippet to ports needing it.

Still, "poudriere testport" will probably fail without changes to
poudriere. But at least, bulk should work this way!

Cheers, Felix
