Is it possible to skip this step and run it manually later on? I'd like to track down every change to the system so I can set up a proper uninstall procedure which can be used when putting it into the ports mechanism.
Besides that, udev is a Linuxism as far as I know. FreeBSD has its own dynamic devfs implementation.

Not yet, but thanks for the hint. I already saw the /usr/bin stuff, though (as mentioned before).
