Please look at proving patches for openswan 2.5.x (git #testing), as the
2.4.x is in maintenance release, and no new features are being added.

Also, like other functionality that not everyone may want, it needs to
be a build option via Makefile.inc, so that it is easy to build with and
without selinux support.

I can pick this up in a few weeks to convert it to 2.5 and to use a
USE_SELINUX= flag, but feel free to send in a newer patch.

Also, we are not very familiar with SElinux. It would be very good to
add various testcases in testing/pluto/ so that we can keep the code
in a working shape.
