I went to the source of xf86-input-evdev-2.6.0 and did:

   grep -r udev *

and got no results.  Are you sure the problem was xf86-input-evdev?

I did a check of all my logs and found the following packages that use

be built in BLFS.  It seems like the deal breaker here for not having 
udev libraries in MesaLib.  I'll try to create a dynamic udev library in 
my script.
