 I haven't built 189, but the instructions look similar to what we
did for 188.  Certainly, very different from common CMMI, but
explained in detail.


0. Remove any existing systemd directory, untar, go into the systemd
directory you just extracted.

1. tar -xvf ../udev-lfs-189.tar.bz2

2. At this point, it is *possible* that you might have problems with
parallel make, so unset MAKEFLAGS if it was set.  I doubt this is
the problem (it usually bites in BLFS making gudev and friends), but
when I moved to setting MAKEFLAGS earlier this year I noticed that
distros were forcing -j1 when building udev.

2. make -f udev-lfs-189/Makefile.lfs

3. If it fails, report the errors.  The people on the list aren't
mind readers : we can't guess what errors you saw, and I'm having a
hard time trying to think of 5 different ways to do this.  By its
nature, the development book will sometimes be broken.  The only way
to fix it is to report the *first* error.
