The following blfs packages mention udev.

general/sysutils/udisks2.xml - required
general/sysutils/colord.xml - recommended
general/sysutils/upower.xml - required
general/sysutils/udisks.xml - required
gnome/add/gnome-boxes.xml -  required
gnome/add/cheese.xml - required
gnome/core/libwacom.xml - required
gnome/core/empathy.xml - optional
multimedia/libdriv/gst-plugins-base.xml - recommended
networking/netutils/networkmanager.xml - required
xfce/core/thunar-volman.xml - required
xfce/core/thunar.xml - optional

Upstream has created a fairly large problem for us that we need to 
figure out how to work around.
