We support stand-alone *operation* of the udev tools, but the build
system does not support a stand-alone *build*. The systemd tree needs
to be built and udev picked out of it.

There are also several other generally useful tools in the built tree,
which you might need too over time, like tmpfiles, module-load,
sysconf, binfmt,  ... A couple of D-Bus services to manage system
settings from the desktop.

Various upstream tools start to install config files or use these
interfaces. It might be the simplest to install them too, even when
systemd is not used.
