No, it appears that it *may* be a bug in the mkromfs distributed with
the RPMs. If you look at the /opt/uclinux/dev directory you will find
that there is a second directory named dev below that one. What I did
to correct the problem was to remove the nested ./dev/dev dir from ./dev.
I then went a step further, I deleted the link that buildenv makes to the
/opt/uclinux/dev dir and made a dir in its place, then I ran a script to
put devices into the that new dev dir. The script is at:
Now I only have one '/dev/console' !!
