Confusion over missing /dev entries for new drive

I've got 4 IDE drives that I've been adding to my OBSD box (master & slave
drives on 2 separate channels).
using fdisk, disklabel, and newfs worked fine on wd1, wd2, and wd3.
But I'm having problems with wd4.
as an example:
bash-2.05# disklabel wd4
disklabel: /dev/rwd4: No such file or directory
So I figured that for whatever reason, the default OBSD install doesn't
include device entries for more than 4 IDE drives.
This is where I'm somewhat out of my league. The mknod man page makes
reference to MAKEDEV. MAKEDEV has no entry for a device name of 'rwd'.
The OBSD FAQ doesn't seem to have much to say about creating new devices.
What am I missing?
