Unfortunately there are systemd libraries installed by Devuan-beowulf
desktop installation DVD.

There are in
/etc and

It appears to be something in the base system as both the headless
systems I recently set up have/had* them.

Optins selected were
console stuff
print server,
ssh server
and what ever is last.

One system did have xfce-xfce4 selected, but the libraries and not
dependant on these.

*rm -rf systemd on the relevant directories doesn't seem to affect
anything. I did this as 'aptitude search systemd' didn't list any
packages installed.

Memo to self; use minimal installation next time.
