Hi Paul,

You need to build re-build systemd with the instructions in BLFS, which
adds support for the full logind as well as polkit and Linux-PAM, and then
rebuild Xorg-Server *without* "--disable-systemd-logind
--enable-install-setuid". I'd recommend rebuilding D-Bus as well after
Xorg, but that is just a personal preference and only depends on what
you're doing next.
