[arch-dev-public] about makedevs script

When doing some polishing of our initscripts I've noticed that
/sbin/makedevs script uses find and rev that are in /usr/bin.
As far as I understand this is wrong because no /bin or /sbin
executable should use anything from /usr.
So, how to fix that? Move find and rev to /bin? Seems like not a good idea.
Another question is - what is the purpose of /sbin/makedevs?
It is not used by initscripts, why it's in the package then?
