There has been some (slow) work on allowing to build FreeIPA on other
systems (debian based) and a systemd dependency would make it harder.
We do not really have a dependency on systemd, but if it is a lot more
work then I guess we can simply open a ticket about it being an issue
and defer, maybe by the time we get around to doing something about it
all other distribution will have fallen in line after all.
