devfs in jails

I've configured a jailed system in 2.5.1-DEVELOPMENT on a Dell Mini 9
[1]. Most everything works as expected following the man page.

Very cool. The one trouble I ran into is with devfs. The Handbook
refers to MAKEDEV. Is MAKEDEV still used in 2.4, or is the Handbook
just out of date? I was able to get SSH working in the jail once I got
devfs working via a 'mount_devfs devfs /usr/jail/blip/dev'.

Is this the right way to mount devfs in a jail?
