I don't think you can get away from this, no matter how you approach
it. The other approach I thought of is to include the udev pieces
directly in openrc and make it possible to build openrc with or without
udev integration. That will still mean you have to rebuild openrc though
if you want udev support.

In the logrotate use flag case, that decision was made because a user
can use INSTALL_MASK="/etc/logrotate.d" in make.conf to block those
files. But that argument definitely does not apply here. If the user
doesn't want this support what should he set INSTALL_MASK to?
