Explicit labeled networking for Linux
The NetLabel control utility, netlabelctl, is a command line program designed
to allow system administrators to configure the NetLabel system in the kernel.
The utility is based around different "modules" which correspond to the
different types of NetLabel commands supported by the kernel.

2016-12-02 -
- Fixed to build on factory and leap-42.2
* Removed obsolete --enable-systemd configure option.
* Pass explicit --with-systemdsystemunitdir configure option;
it is used in the rpm file list anyway and avoids detection
in configure using systemd.pc pkg-config query.
* Removed unneeded systemd-devel build-require, which does not
provide the systemd.pc pkg-config file, but libsystemd files.
* Added systemd-rpm-macros build-require for reliable _unitdir.
- Fixed to call service script macros in the correct package.
2015-12-01 -
- Update to version 0.21
* Converted the build system to autotools
* Fixed a number of style/formatting problems, see 'make check-syntax'

basic tests, see the "tests/" directory
- Remove 0001-Port-to-libnl3.patch and netlabel_tools-0.20.diff; fixed
on upstream release

- Unconditionally build with systemd support; the package doesn't
build for SLE11 anyway
