I resolved the issue by running ./configure again after installing the missing 

Seems like there should be a better way to enumerate and check for required 
packages vs. optional features.

One other observation I made was that processing one of the OVAL checkers using 
SCAP consistently resulted in launching the OOM Killer. I was running in A VM 
w/6GB of memory. My guess is that your using a DOM XML parser instead of a SAX 
parser which would be much more efficient and not result in OOM conditions.

That's a weird issue, I'm also using Fedora 24 and build works for me.

Please ensure that you have installed all the packages listed in the README.
The trick is to run this:
$ sudo dnf builddep openscap

Maybe the previous unsuccessful build has left your repository
in some sort of an inconsistent state. Try to clean everything using:
$ make clean
$ git clean -xf
And then build it again following the instructions in README.

We use swig to generate Python bindings for the OpenSCAP library. Probably
you don't need them (unless you are a developer of the Anaconda project). :-)
You can disable the Python bindings using ./configure --disable-python 

You might also want to check the Developer's section of OpenSCAP User's manual.

I hope this helps a little.
