I suppose the main downside there is that you will get a more cryptic
error message if it isn't new enough.

On the other hand, even if you don't use --with-selinux, you can still
do "make -C contrib/sepgsql" and you'll have the same problem, so I'm
not sure that we're really heavily shielded against a failure of this
type as it is.

Perhaps we could remove --with-selinux, but *always* test whether we
have a new enough version of selinux.  If we don't, we set it up so
that configure succeeds anyway, but any attempt to build sepgsql
fails?  (Not sure if there's a clean way to do that.)
