One difference that jumped out at me was that systemd's libudev is 1.4.0
and eudev's version is 1.3.0. I don't know how much that changes things.
eudev wants gperf and gtk-doc. We could add gperf to LFS and probably
do away with both gperf and the gudev build in BLFS. gtk-doc needs
several other prerequisites and is not a candidate for LFS, but I don't
think that's needed.
