I think libuuid is a bad fit for a builtin.mk.
util-linux libuuid offers similar functionality but doesn't follow the
same structs/function definitions used by other implementations.
Note that they all say "compatible with DCE 1.1 RPC specification" but
util-linux doesn't say this and uses different function signatures.
Sometimes packages support both, but there's no guarantee that they are
I suspect the same is also true for dragonflybsd uuid_* functions.
