It took me a while to work out exactly how to configure this, so here's the
recipe (from a FreeBSD 5.4 box)
Then run "/etc/rc.d/devfs start"
Under FreeBSD 5.4 at least, mknod still works. But using devfs is much
better since you get all necessary pty devices.
$ ls /chroot/dev
fd ptyp2 ptyp7 ptypc stderr ttyp2 ttyp7 ttypc zero
log ptyp3 ptyp8 ptypd stdin ttyp3 ttyp8 ttypd
null ptyp4 ptyp9 ptype stdout ttyp4 ttyp9 ttype
ptyp0 ptyp5 ptypa ptypf ttyp0 ttyp5 ttypa ttypf
ptyp1 ptyp6 ptypb random ttyp1 ttyp6 ttypb urandom
