I've been building with mach on a devfs enabled box for a while.  On
that box I'm forced to resort to some dirty hacks to get things to work
but it boils down to mounting devfs (for FC3->FC2 that'll be udev
instead) onto the buildroots /dev.  Then rpm -ivh --justdb'ing the dev
rpm onto the buildroot between doing a mach setup base and mach setup
build.

It's very ugly but it might be more workable from within mach itself. 
Then again, it doesn't give you a 100% true representation of what's in
the dev package on FC2....
