For embedded distros udev without systemd is a very real usecase.

I don't care about these. But cross-compiling dbus when it's not actually
wanted or needed is not ok.

This is uncalled for. Depending on a good build-system is ok. But it was
clearly stated that using udev without systemd will still be possible. I
don't see why it should not be possible to build udev without systemd and
therefore any extra dependencies.
