Keep in mind why you want this. If you are really going through the book 
as a user, this entire conversation is moot. You will not be outside of 
dev trying to get back in before you reboot your new system with a shiny 
new udev to auto-populate /dev. Unless, of course, you've restarted your 
machine in which case the book has already referred you to the beginning 
  of chapter six.

So, really, it appears that you want this to make your experience with 
jhalfs nicer. In which case, is it really harder to remember:

mount --bind /dev $LFS/dev

I'm not intending to be unsympathetic. I just don't understand how your 
proposed command really benefits the average end user.
