add dmidecode as a dependency

devel/libvirt uses on sysutils/dmidecode to get the system uuid.

This is not required, however it does throw errors in the logs and does not work with the default config.

Can you please supply the error in the logs?

Also, is this with the default options, or with any particular option enabled?

I also may post this upstream, as the UUID can be taken from sysctl.

$ sudo dmidecode |grep -i uuid
        UUID: 42355DE8-C55C-E487-8E16-509A78EB5EE1
$ sysctl kern.hostuuid
kern.hostuuid: 42355de8-c55c-e487-8e16-509a78eb5ee1
