 I'm trying a different approach at the moment (hack 'configure'
enough to complete, then see if I can use existing Makefile targets
to do most of the heavy lifting).  So far I've only got through the
trivial part (intltool, XML::Parser, gperf) - changed one line in
configure, created a script at /tools/bin/intltool-update to report
0.40.0, linked that also as intltool-extract, intltool-merge, gperf.

 Now I'm on to the *fun* parts (libcap, dbus) which I think will
require some more substantial changes to configure - don't hold your
breathe waiting!

 Partly I'm doing this to ensure all the important -D defines in the
Makefile get set correctly so that udevd will find the other progs,
and partly to rely on the existing infrastructure.  I'm also hoping
this approach will be more-easily maintainable (if it works).

 But meanwhile, good luck with your testing.
