Hi Ian, Mark
I'm switching to your packaging and i've spotted few issues, althought i'm
a bit in a rush so i may be wrong (forgive me in that case)

* you are starting elogind twice each boot, first with dbus and than with a
sysv script, you're not catching this with 'log_end_msg' because the second
instance of       elogind print a message but exit 0. This is not a problem
for sysv but it is with runit, it will keep restarting elogind forever
(twice per second)
    For me, having a 'Exec=/sbin/false' in
/usr/share/dbus-1/system-service/org.freedesktop.login1.service is working.
* runit ship no /sbin/poweroff, so i can reboot but can't shutdown.. could
you evaluate setting '-Dpoweroff-path=/sbin/shutdown' ?
* libelogind-dev is conflicting with libsystemd-dev (the man pages); I have
no idea on how a Debian build machine work, but package like polkit-1 in
Debian will        need both, can a build machine deal with 2 conflicting
build depends?
