Well Dan, I've run into a problem with autoconf that I can't figure out
how to solve. configure.ac has several lines like:
PKG_CHECK_MODULES(KMOD, [libkmod >= 5])
Now that's a reasonable check, but requires cfg.m4 which is installed by
pkg_config. We don't have that in LFS. I don't know how to get around it.
To answer a question you may not be up to speed on, we don't install
pkg-config in lfs because the pkg-config developers inconveniently made
it depend on glib. The dependencies are:
pkg-config (recursive, but can work around)
several optional dependencies
We are in the position of needing to install four packages (one
incomplete) just to satisfy the systemd build methodology that requires
things we don't need for udev.
Perhaps the way to go is to create a custom Makefile.udev and then
make -f Makefile.udev
make -f Makefile.udev install
