Description John D. Ramsdell 2008-06-13 20:42:58 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008060309 Firefox/3.0

Description of problem:
With libsepol-devel installed, the following autoconf script fails.

  AC_MSG_ERROR([libsepol headers missing]))

LIBS="-Wl,-dn -lsepol -Wl,-dy $LIBS"

  AC_MSG_ERROR([libsepol.a missing]))

It looks for libsepol.a, because does not export policydb_read.

Install libsepol-static.

Comment 2 John D. Ramsdell 2008-06-16 13:20:43 UTC
Thanks Dan.  I updated Slat's README to reflect this change.  FYI, I've been
asked the get slat working again.  I notice the binary interface has changed yet
again. Off to hack C code...
