[Buildroot] Fakeroot issues

Hi I am trying to use buildroot to generate me a CPIO archive which is then
included in my kernel image as a initramfs.

The problem I am having is that is looks like all has worked, no errors etc.  
However the devices that are created by makedev are not being created as
devices but just as files.

I am presuming this is dues to an issue with fakeroot.  As I can run makedev
as root user with same parameters and it all works fine.  

It there any easy way to debug what is going on with fakeroot as I cant get
this to work at the moment.

I am using Redhat EL4 (Unfortunate Work Choice) in case that might trigger
