The link failure occurs regardless of whether dmeventd is enabled.
As you could see from the diagnostics, it is SELinux-related.
Build with "make LIBS=" (to attempt linking without -lselinux),
and you see which functions:

  ../lib/ioctl/libdevmapper.a(libdm-common.o): In function `dm_set_selinux_context':
  libdm-common.c:(.text+0x571): undefined reference to `is_selinux_enabled'
  libdm-common.c:(.text+0x58d): undefined reference to `matchpathcon'
  libdm-common.c:(.text+0x5dd): undefined reference to `lsetfilecon'
  libdm-common.c:(.text+0x5ec): undefined reference to `freecon'
  libdm-common.c:(.text+0x659): undefined reference to `freecon'
  collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
  make[1]: *** [dmsetup.static] Error 1

The test introduced by my initial patch was run only if $SELINUX = yes
(the default), by virtue of being in that if-block.  The one below
further restricts it to run only if $HAVE_SELINUX is also "yes".

If it's ok to commit this now, let me know what version of autoconf
to use when regenerating "configure".
