So be it, for now.

The place is cleaned from libsysfs/ and libdevmapper/ starting from
0.4.4-pre6.

I modified the Makefiles to still compile properly with BUILD=klibc on
systems with /usr/lib/klibc/ properly stuffed with klibc-compiled
versions of these libs. A little more work for people interested in this
setup, but still fairly manageable.

Hope it eases the packaging for everyone.
Please tell if some more work needs to be merged in this area.
