Of course, both of those are autotools IIRC, so we can get away with a -L/tools/lib in LDFLAGS, I think. Only Systemd is difficult because it uses the pkg-config values.

If there was a problem with Procps or psmisc, wouldn't it show up in the 
sysV book?  The symlinks are created in systemd and that isn't built 
with the sysV book.

Also, psmisc is built well before systemd.
