May I ask how you came to the conclusion that systemd is required to build Mutter with Wayland support?

Although the configure script does not halt with an error, config.log shows that the script has searched and failed to find libsystemd and make fails with an unknown type name error.

Neither of the above occurs without the wayland backend.

Ah, just came across this:

https://github.com/dantrell/gentoo-project-gnome-without-systemd/blob/master/README.md

From the link above:

This project delivers:

The only feature which does not work is Wayland.

Yes, the root cause is explained over there:

What would be so bad about systemd on Tiny Core Linux?
