  With Freebsd it'll be character block devices,  they depreciated mknod in favor of devfs.    A good place to start is man devfs (8) and (5).


   Thanks for the interesting discussion.

copying just doesn't make sense. cp /dev/null just creates an empty
file. cp /dev/urandom just creates a file full of random. They both do
not create a device.

As I said, I know little of FreeBSD, but it sound to me that you should
try to find an expert that knows how to create devices outside /dev/ on
