I have not yet downloaded your git branch, but which packages do you build with
elogind 2.39?

In Devuan we have
Package: elogind
Version: 234.4-2
Binary: elogind, libelogind0, libelogind-dev, libpam-elogind

and two backends for policykit-1: -consolekit, -elogind
Package: policykit-1
Version: 0.105-18+devuan2.11
Binary: policykit-1, policykit-1-doc, gir1.2-polkit-1.0, libpolkit-agent-1-0,
libpolkit-agent-1-dev, libpolkit-gobject-1-0, libpolkit-gobject-1-dev,
libpolkit-gobject-consolekit-1-0, libpolkit-gobject-consolekit-1-dev, libpolkit-
gobject-1-0-consolekit, libpolkit-gobject-elogind-1-0, libpolkit-gobject-
elogind-1-dev, libpolkit-gobject-1-0-elogind, libpolkit-backend-1-0, libpolkit-
backend-1-dev, libpolkit-backend-consolekit-1-0, libpolkit-backend-consolekit-1-
dev, libpolkit-backend-1-0-consolekit, libpolkit-backend-elogind-1-0, libpolkit-
backend-elogind-1-dev, libpolkit-backend-1-0-elogind

(many of the above packages are transitional ones)
In the early stage we even had three backends: -systemd but that one was removed
since it was not needed in Devuan. Depending on the need (and compatibility of
libelogind0 to libsystemd0) we can maybe reintroduce it again.
