Util-linux and systemd/libudev

Currently, the CLFS book has an installation of Util-linux early in the final-system, with a note saying that the user can reinstall it after systemd (or Eudev in the sysvinit book) to link against libudev. In ticket #976, blackadder mentioned possibly building it twice, or doing as LFS does and linking e2fsprogs and systemd to Util-linux libs in /tools.

Personally, I'd rather not link it to stuff in /tools - it might work fine, but it adds a bit more complication to the build. I'd suggest either keeping it as-is or adding a 2nd build to the book. Any other thoughts?

We may as well build it twice and give it full coverage for the system. It's that or keep the note for Util-Linux and edit the notes as required in the Systemd and Sysvinit books.

It would be a good idea to build a complete Util-Linux in Ch10. If we do that then would we name the chapters as Util-linux pass1 and Util-linux pass2?

That seems a good idea to build a pass1 with limited options, and then again as pass2 after systemd. Obviously things like python bindings, smack and bash completions should be avoided.

I have a render for a proposal for this ticket. I plan to commit this if no issues are found in the next few days.

Build a pass1 and have the enhanced additions with pass2.
