There is a small problem in the nscd/Makefile which is triggered in the
* build host is a FC3 system (with libselinux-devel installed)
* Glibc is configured with `--with-headers=/somewhere-non-standard'
For reference, here is a relevant snippet of configure output:
checking for is_selinux_enabled in -lselinux... yes
checking for NSCD Flask permissions in selinux/av_permissions.h... yes
In these circumstances the build of nscd fails with the following:
nscd_stat.c:34:30: selinux/selinux.h: No such file or directory
nscd_stat.c:35:26: selinux/avc.h: No such file or directory
The cause is due to the Makefile variable $sysincludes which prevents
/usr/include from being searched.
A similar fix went in for malloc/memusagestat with the following ChangeLog:

* malloc/Makefile ($(objpfx)memusagestat.o: sysincludes): Define
file-specific variable override so it compiles properly when using
A similar approach fixes the problem in the nscd/Makefile. I'll attach a patch
that makes it work for me.

minor fix for nscd/Makefile
I've applied some patch although I have no sympathy for anybody using
--with-headers. That option is really only for the initial port.

Ulrich, thanks for fixing this. However, there is still a small problem. Those
lines need to be inside the
for the fix to be effective. It seems there is a mis-placed `endif'. I'll attach
a tiny patch to correct it.

another minor fix for nscd/Makefile
I see nothing wrong and your proposed patch is definitely wrong. Excluding
sysincludes for nscd_stat has nothing to do with selinux, selinux-LIBS is empty
if have-selinux isn't defined.
