[lfs-dev] Installing util-linux before udev

Hi all

Due to the circular dependencies between util-linux and eudev, I have 
installed util-linux before eudev with the option --without-udev.

This worked fine and to my knowledge only excludes one binary from 
util-linux, making it perfectly usable for my needs.

Now, when I get to the eudev chapter, it contains a few things that seem 
only be neccessary if util-linux is taken from /tools:

cat > config.cache << "EOF"

LIBRARY_PATH=/tools/lib make

make LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/tools/lib check
make LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/tools/lib install

Am I safe to assume that I can skip those in my case and only use

make check
make install

Also, are there any other problems to be expected when I create 
util-linux without udev support?

Kind regards
