I have just tested:

./configure --prefix=/usr      \
            --enable-dmeventd  \
            --enable-cmdlib    \
            --enable-pkgconfig &&
make device-mapper
make DESTDIR=/tmp/DEST-LVM2.2.02.104 install_device-mapper


$ ls */*
libdevmapper-event.h  libdevmapper.h

libdevmapper-event.so       libdevmapper.so       pkgconfig
libdevmapper-event.so.1.02  libdevmapper.so.1.02

dmeventd  dmsetup


--enable-pkgconfig to have /usr/lib/pkgconfig or it will not appear

--enable-dmeventd --enable-cmdlib to have dmeventd,
libdevmapper-event.so and libdevmapper-event.h
