Don't enable journald if your system doesn't use journald.

As for having journald optionally in the distro, if we can detect at runtime 
and fallback if it's not running, we should implement it.

If we can't detect, then don't enable the feature in your distro unless you're 
sure that journald will be running (excepted misconfiguration, of course).
