The best I can tell is that util-linux builds uuidd which is used for
very high frequenct uuid generation. That is a pretty esoteric use.
The only thing I can find that uses it is the proprietary SAP program
which uses uuids as a database key.
What util-linux is doing is trying to install a .service file for uuidd
if the host system has systemd installed.
This is not an issue on a system that does not currently have a
pkgconfig file for systemd (including Chapter 6 of the book).
I'll add --without-systemdsystemunitdir to the book to avoid the
problem. Thanks to JB and Mg for reporting.
