        No, it is not. The configure patch:
+# Check whether user wants SELinux support
+       [  --with-selinux[[=LIBSELINUX-PATH]]   Enable SELinux support],
+       [ if test "x$withval" != "xno" ; then
+               if test "x$withval" != "xyes"; then
+                       CPPFLAGS="$CPPFLAGS -I${withval}/include"
+                       if test -n "${need_dash_r}"; then
+                               LDFLAGS="-L${withval}/lib -R${withval}/lib ${LDFLAGS}"
+                       else
+                               LDFLAGS="-L${withval}/lib ${LDFLAGS}"
+                       fi
+               fi 
+               AC_DEFINE(WITH_SELINUX,1,[Define if you want SELinux support.])
+               SELINUX_MSG="yes"
+               AC_CHECK_HEADERS(selinux.h)
+               LIBSELINUX="-lselinux"
+       fi
+       ])
 ensures that LIBSELINUX expands to -lselinux only on machines where
 it is available, not otherwise.

        Unless you are saying that the configure.ac patch is broken,
 in which case please supply a log of the regenerated configure script
 showing that it fails.

        I have not run autoreconf prior to generating my patch, so
 that the patch is not bloated with autoconf trivia.

Happiness is a hard disk.
