As I see it, gudev is optional, and brings the whole libglib2 stack
behind it. Do we really need to forcibly select it?

I mean: can't we just keep the part in the .mk, to guarantee the build
ordre when libgudev is enabled?

I.e. we just keep that part.

That was my intention. ;-)

We want explcit enableing/disabling of optional features when there is
an option for that: this ensures that the buildsystem of the package
does not accidentally picks up the headers or libs from the host by
chance (e.g. a build on an x86 host for an x86 target).

By the look of it, that val2-gudev option is exactly about controlling
use of gudev:

    option('v4l2-gudev', type : 'feature', value : 'auto',
            description : 'Use libgudev for probing v4l2 devices')

So, is this correct, that this option controls use of gudev?
