So, the dependency path from gnome-network-manager to udev is:

It appears hal needs a rebuild because of the libvolume_id soname bump 
in the udev package.  Updating udev then restarting hal and 
networkmanager make my internet die.  I very quickly tried rebuilding 
hal but it failed....

checking whether to rebuild gperf header files... checking for DBUS... yes
checking for GLIB... yes
checking if GLib is version 2.14.0 or newer... yes
checking for VOLUME_ID... configure: error: Package requirements 
(libvolume_id >= 0.77) were not met:

No package 'libvolume_id' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables VOLUME_ID_CFLAGS
and VOLUME_ID_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
