in /etc/rc.conf does not work.


	not applicable


	in /etc/rc.d/devfs:devfs_start()

                devfs_set_ruleset $devfs_system_ruleset /dev
                devfs_apply_ruleset $devfs_system_ruleset /dev

	the $ signs must be removed. Similar problem a couple of lines lower:

                                devfs_set_ruleset $_set $_dir
                                devfs_apply_ruleset $_set $_dir

	But maybe its better to change the devfs functions in rc.subr.
