The Arch Linux package for systemd is built without support for fido2, so commands such as `homectl update user --fido2-device=list` fail.
My request is to add "-Dlibfido2=true" to the build options for Arch Linux's systemd package.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* link to upstream bug report, if any

I can confirm this is required to unlock systemd-homed managed home directory using a fido2 device like a Yubikey 5.

Here is the output of the corresponding command:

$ homectl update user --fido2-device=auto
FIDO2 tokens not supported on this build.

PKGBUILD.diff adds libfido2 and tpm2-tss to makedepends and as optdepends for systemd, the libraries are dlopened allowing them to be optdepends.
Also adds relevant options to _meson_options array to enable support to ensure is built in.

Can this be resolved if there is no reason to keep fido2 disabled?

There are outstanding issues with the implementation in 247 see [1] it might be better to wait for 248.
