Hi Mark,
Maybe a fake lead or maybe something to work with.

When you build polkit-1 (the one in Debian Sid, not in experimental) from
Debian source
try to:
* apply the patch [1] with quilt
* install both libelogind-dev and libsystemd-dev
* just do the build, without changing anything in the rule file
* Inspect the package with 'dpkg -I package.deb'

The result, for me, is

$ dpkg -I libpolkit-backend-1-0_0.105-21_amd64.deb
new Debian package, version 2.0.

Package: libpolkit-backend-1-0
Source: policykit-1
Version: 0.105-21
Architecture: amd64
Maintainer: Utopia Maintenance Team <

Installed-Size: 135
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.4), libelogind0, libexpat1 (>= 2.0.1), libglib2.0-0
(>= 2.37.3), libpolkit-gobject-1-0 (= 0
.105-21), libsystemd0 (>= 213)
Section: libs
Priority: optional
Multi-Arch: same
Homepage: https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/polkit/
Description: PolicyKit backend API
 PolicyKit is a toolkit for defining and handling the policy that
 allows unprivileged processes to speak to privileged processes.
 This package contains a library for implementing authentication backends.

Haven't check if the Dep on libsystemd0 is some spuriuos dependency wrongly
determined by the dh sequencer,
or if it's really linked against both libelogind and libsystemd. I can add
* it works with elogind (for me)
* It's build on my system with 'dpkg-buildpackage', don't know if it's
replicable in a proper chroot build
* Haven't try to see if it's working with systemd and libpam-systemd
