With devfs the output of "df" should have something like
      udev                   10M  296K  9.8M   3% /dev
and there shoud be a directory .udev/ in /dev.

As with many other features, you can use udev or the old
mechanism at your choice. I think you need to recompile

One of the painful things about our time is that those who feel certainty 
are stupid, and those with any imagination and understanding are filled 
with doubt and indecision. -- Bertrand Russell
