Heads-up on SELinux profile update
 
Hi guys,

In reply to bug #414785, I'm going to make the following change to the
SELinux profile. If that isn't okay, just let me know.

Reasoning:
- the three packages should not be hard-set as requirements (definitely not
for SELinux, so if they are, that should be inherited from the parent
profile)
- the util-linux and pam package versions are already quite old (stable
versions are a lot higher than those) and I don't see a need to fix
util-linux and pam in the system set for SELinux

I'll pun them in a few days if there are no objections.

Wkr,
Sven Vermeulen
