Ah right, good point, I hadn't thought of this - are you in fact using udev?  
(I'm guessing not DevFS because it doesn't work in domUs).

I'm guess the support in there for keeping the gettys quiet doesn't help if 
the device nodes don't exist!!!

In any case, it's totally harmless and you can comment out the inittab 
entries, as other people have mentioned, in order to make it go away.
