Default No /dev entries in recent stage3 snapshots?

I'm doing an install using the quick-install doc and this weeks
stage3 snapshot, and I find I can't use scp or ssh once I've
chroot'ed. Is that normal?

livecd linux # scp 192.168.2.4:/usr/src/linux/.config .
PRNG is not seeded

I noticed the same thing in the install I did a few days ago.
Later in that install grub failed to install and after
rebooting, my /dev directory was missing just about everything.

Here's the /dev directory in the chroot'ed environment I got
using stage3-i686-20090114.tar.bz2:

livecd linux # ls -l /dev
total 12
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Jan 20 21:30 MAKEDEV -> ../sbin/MAKEDEV
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 75 Jan 20 21:49 null
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jan 13 19:29 pts
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jan 13 19:29 shm

I checked the contents of stage3-i686-20090114.tar.bz2, and
this is all that's there:

$ tar tvf stage3-i686-20090114.tar.bz2 | fgrep ./dev
drwxr-xr-x root/root 0 2009-01-13 21:20 ./dev/
-rw-r--r-- root/root 0 2009-01-13 21:20 ./dev/null
lrwxrwxrwx root/root 0 2009-01-13 19:29 ./dev/MAKEDEV -> ../sbin/MAKEDEV
-rw-r--r-- root/root 0 2009-01-13 19:29 ./dev/.keep
drwxr-xr-x root/root 0 2009-01-13 19:29 ./dev/shm/
-rw-r--r-- root/root 0 2009-01-13 19:29 ./dev/shm/.keep
drwxr-xr-x root/root 0 2009-01-13 19:29 ./dev/pts/
-rw-r--r-- root/root 0 2009-01-13 19:29 ./dev/pts/.keep

In contrast, stage3-i686-2008.0.tar.bz2 has a fully populated
/dev/ tree:

$ tar tvf stage3-i686-2008.0.tar.bz2 | fgrep ./dev | wc -l
5181

I'm a little confused. Is there supposed to be an additional
installation step to populate the /dev directory when using
recent stage3 snapshots?
