Build fails with new style SCSI device paths on Ubuntu

On my Ubuntu 7.04 device paths for storage devices are formatted as /dev/disk/by-id/xxxx, /dev/disk/by-label/yyyy or /dev/disk/by-uuid/zzzz
Build system fails with "Bad file descriptor" when trying to write boot code
Using old style /dev/hd* or /dev/sd* doesn't work reliably because drive letters change between boots depending on number of hot-plugged drives.
I guess expected behavior would be to ask underlying operating system for correct block device associated with the disk id. I don't see it very hard to implement as new paths are symbolic links that can be resolved.
