What exactly do you mean by `recompiled against elogind' ?  Do you
mean `with libelogind-dev installed alongside libsystemd-dev' ?

If my supposition above is right, then I think this means we should
(as soon as elogind hits sid) file bugs:
 * policykit-1 asking for libelogin-dev to be added to B-D
 * lightdm and runuser asking for the pam config to be updated
 * anything that needed libpam-elogind-compat, asking for the
   dependency to be changed
