Have any of you guys considered actually making patches and sending
them upstream? The autotools are not that scary. Having been both
upstream and downstream, my guess is that those guys will accept
patches that allow a udev-only build, but they just don't have any
interest in doing that work themselves. I'm sure there are more than a
few people around who are interested in that scenario (they're already
showing up on the hotplug list) who would test and push for the
patches. If it's that critical to keep systemd out of LFS, then you'd
probably be best served by taking control of the situation. IMO.

Here's an untested patch to get you started.
