I would appreciate if you could make it possible to install just the libraries and headers, so that I could test whether my packages build against elogind without actually having to remove systemd.
I'm not sure if this belongs in the tree or not. What about INSTALL_MASK?
INSTALL_MASK would not resolve the blocker. Besides, I don't think I'm the only one who would appreciate being able to test his packages, if your goal is indeed to support elogind Gentoo-wide.
Hmm, how about something as crazy as USE=systemd that builds libraries but connects to systemd's logind? I suppose they use the same API, so it should work.
Sven, do you think this is feasible at all?

Libraries and binaries have their own names, the includes are in /usr/include/elogind, and the config is in /etc/elogind.
What would clash are:
- All man pages but
The dbus files are important! They must not be installed, or dbus *will* autostart elogind if systemd-login hasn't registered itself already.
