I used to get this error with devfs and a few other things on an old 
(2004.3). Switching to udev, re-emerging pam and something else (dunno
what off the top of my head and the notes are somewhere in
the house move boxes).

Since you already have udev though this isn't necessarily useful info.

Obvious question: you did disable the devfs mount in the kernel build?
