Arg, you're right of course. (I don't have a chapter-6-level system
handy to use for testing, hence my comment earlier about missing some of
the required dependencies.) :-(

Looks fine.  We can rip that out after installing udev, as well.

That's ... well, that works, though it's slightly weird. (Less so than
the change above though, I think.)

Might also work to just rip out the IT_PROG_INTLTOOL line in
configure.ac and rerun autoconf? That generates both of these.

For gperf, it'd work to stuff "ac_cv_prog_GPERF=/bin/false" into a
config.cache file, and pass --cache=config.cache to configure. It checks
the cache before trying to find the program. As long as it's not set to
an empty string, the configure checks will be happy. :-)

(Though my system obviously has gperf too. :-/)

This might work the same way you're doing libcap, below; then we don't
need the cache file. (Though we do something similar to the cache file
for glibc -- or we used to, anyway. Not sure anymore.)

Arg, there's no way to override ac_fn_c_try_link, or get its return from
cache. :-(

Or override CAP_LIBS="" when running make.
