Ubuntu and Debian does use blkid from util-linux.  I'm guessing Autif
compiled e2fsprogs by hand.

For the record, what I recommend for people who are using debian or
Ubuntu systems (of whatever vintage) is:

tar xvfz e2fsprogs-1.42.7.tar.gz
cd e2fsprogs-1.42.7
fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage

This will build .deb packages that are suitable for whatever version
of Debian or Ubuntu (including really ancient ones before blkid was
moved to util-linux) you happen to be using.

I plan to change the default for libblkid before I release 1.43.
