I had a conversation with the util-linux devs and they said there were
some advantages to building after udev but the capabilities were
silently left out if not. But udev needs BLKID in util-linux. That's
why I added util-linux to Ch 5.
So what we have is
util-linux in Ch 5
eudev in Ch 6
util-linux in Ch 6
That reminds me. I still need to update C. Dependencies for eudev.
