You must have done a partial rebuild to reach this issue, because:
$ grep UTIL_LINUX package/libglib2/Config.in
So there is no way for util-linux to not have libmount support.
The issue you're seeing is typically what happens when util-linux is
built first, without libmount support. Then later on you enable
libglib2, but don't do a full rebuild. So util-linux is not rebuilt
with libmount support, and you see this problem.

However, if libmount support is indeed optional in libglib2, should we
also make it optional in Buildroot ? This mandatory dependency was

libglib2: bump to version 2.50.0
It now requires util-linux libmount so add the dependency/select.
Perhaps we need to revisit this and make it optional again ? Could you
have a look into this ?
