Looks like the .spec file needs to install all of the modules as a
single transaction to deal with mutually dependent modules.  Or, it
could install them layer-by-layer.  Unfortunately, current semodule
usage requires you to generate the list of all the modules, then prefix
them all with -i options, then pass that entire string as the
commandline to semodule.  Something like:
	# Location where modules are installed from policy package
	cd /usr/share/selinux/strict
	# Generate semodule command line with all non-base modules
	ls *.pp | sed -e "/base.pp/d" -e "/enableaudit.pp/d" -e "i-i " | tr "\n" " " > out
	# Run semodule
	semodule -v `cat out`
