oh, sorry, I forgot about this. Unfortunately we cannot simply link
against libdevstat because there is a libstatgrab - the version that
comes with Debian, for example, doesn't need libdevstat. Also,
apparently there are at least two versions of libdevstat - checking for
just one simbol always breaks at least one of them.

That's right.

I think the way to go is to ask libstatgrab what libraries it needs.
This can be done using `pkg-config', like:
 $ pkg-config --libs libstatgrab
Could you run that command on your machine and see (a) if it works and
(b) if it provides all required libraries?

I'll commit a patch for this soon, so you should be able to test the
change using the Git repository in an hour or so.
