Hi,

there are no separate *-devel packages on crux, because each package is 
expected to ship the header files, etc., too (because you need them to 
compile dependent packages anyways). IOW: You're good to go with "libuuid" 
or "uuid" or however the package will be called.

The port search unfortunately does not turn up any results for "uuid", 
though:

https://crux.nu/portdb/index.php?q=uuid&a=search

So my approach usually is to take one of archlinux's PKGBUILD and port 
this to crux :-) (big thanks to archlinux for providing so close-to-crux 
sources, btw!)

"pkgfile -s libuuid.so" (on arch) returns, that it is part of 
util-linux-libs - so you're back at the beginning: take util-linux from 
core, which should provide a uuid.h :-) (yes, I know, "prt-get fsearch 
libuuid.so" should also turn this up :-p)

HTH,
Erich
