  The official method is to build busybox with the "mdev" USE flag.  That
is the only way that virtual/dev-manager recognizes it, and doesn't try
to pull in udev, instead.  From the ebuild...

RDEPEND="|| (
                sys-fs/udev
                sys-apps/busybox[mdev]
                sys-fs/devfsd
                sys-fs/static-dev
                sys-freebsd/freebsd-sbin
        )"

  TOOT!!! (blowing my own horn).  See http://www.waltdnes.org/mdev/ for
instructions on replacing udev with mdev for simple Gentoo systems.
Hopefully more info will start arriving, allowing more complex systems
to work with mdev.
