Follow-up Comment #1:

Sorry about my delay in response.   Let me check I understood you:

- you want to be able to forcibly prevent linking against the shared
libraries for selinux in order to be able to build on system A (which has
selinux) and run it on system B (which does not)?

If so, I sympathise.  However, many GNU tools are developed under the
assumption that the system takes responsibility for a certain amount of
backward compatibility.  That is, that it will in general be possible to build
on an old system and run on a new system.  There's generally no assumption
about the reverse hodling.

However, "old" vs. "new" and "with-selinux" vs. "without-selinux" is I
suppose orthogonal.

As you indicated though, the right place to make any change of this type is
gnulib.  Could you raise this issue on address@hidden please?
