Thanks for your contribution !

It looks like a good opportunity to fix ./configure's libuuid detection.

We just have to agree on an approach.
if --with-libuuid explicitly specified
  search for libuuid (pkg-config or fallback to AC_SEARCH_LIBS)
  if not found print error and stop
  search for uuid_create (AC_CHECK_FUNC)
  if not found
    if --without-libuuid explicitly specified
      use fallback code
      search for libuuid (pkg-config or fallback to AC_SEARCH_LIBS)
      if not found
        use fallback code

What do you think ?
Would you like to amend your patch or should I do it ?
