missing /dev/i2c nodes

using gentoo with a homebuilt 2.6.10 (gentoo patched) kernel and udev on a nforce4 based system.

I compiled i2c support as modules, and modprobe i2c_dev, but sensors-detect from lm-sensors tells me

No i2c device files found. Use prog/mkdev/ to create them.

I have checked, and there is no /dev/i2c-* or /dev/i2c.

theres nothing of use in dmesg (in fact, notably so...)

my general plan was:

recompile kernel with i2c support (modules)
emerge lm-sensors
echo "i2c_dev" >> /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6
echo "i2c_nforce2" >> /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6

but no joy.

any leads? is this a problem with udev? the kernel?
