I think that they work without libudev when using the plugins
stand-alone from the command line when running an application, but then
device discovery won't work, so you'll need to explicitly give the input
device to use.

Example "./myapp -plugin evdev:/dev/event0"

On the other hand, the evdev plugins are automatically compiled into
eglfs now, and thus at least eglfs probably requires the libudev device
discovery functionality, since there's no way to pass the "/dev/event0"
parameter to the evdev mouse / keyboard manager inside eglfs.
