This is not what either Ian or I intended to suggest. It is perfectly
fine for the binary to be dynamically linked against -lsystemd-daemon in
the normal way (and for the resulting binary packages to depend on the
libsystemd-daemon package etc) if the headers etc are present at compile

What we were after was for the actual use of systemd to be runtime not
compile time. IOW it is fine for xenstored to require the library to be
installed, but not that systemd be the init which is in use.

Please can we get rid of this list (which is bad enough in itself but
the three spurious entries are ludicrous) and just
etc and use those for lookups, as I described in
