Source: dmraid
Version: 1.0.0.rc16-8
Severity: minor


dmraid is linking against libselinux and libsepol bug AFAICS, it's not
using any of their symbols.

I'm not sure why dmraid started linking against libselinux in the first
place, I looked at a really old version of the package in the archive
(0.9.9+1.0.0.rc9-1 form 2005) and it was the same, just linking against
libselinux with using any symbols.

I think it's safe to say that these (build-)dependencies can be dropped

Kind regards,

Laurent Bigonville
