udev 142 - no longer includes libvolume_id and vol_id

taken from NEWS

The program vol_id and the library libvolume_id are removed from the
repository. Libvolume_id is merged with libblkid from the util-linux-ng
package. Persistent disk links for label and uuid depend on the
util-linux-ng version (2.15) of blkid now. Older versions of blkid
can not be used with udev.

I came across this problem when attempting to compile hal 0.5.12rc1.
but I noted that the LFS docs still make reference to volume_id
