Thanks Steve.  Looking at the Makefile and the source dir layout, it looks as if
the intention is for distro packagers to do:

make LOCAL_CFG_DIR=etc/udev/[distro name].  Trivial, completely untested patch

As for the uninstallation, that shouldn't cause much of a problem as the command
is preceded by a '-' meaning that `make' will ignore any errors it causes.

The alternative is to submit our rules file upstream and have them put it in an
etc/udev/lfs directory.  But then, "LFS is not a distro", so should we really be
going that route?
