Well, the right fix is to fix the sepgsql regression tests so that they
adhere to the uniform model of being something you can run without
destructive modifications to the host system.  What's being discussed at
the moment is the least messy stopgap we can have until the tests are
fixed.  I think that just taking sepgsql out of the subdirectory list
(except for "make clean") might well be the most attractive workaround.

Another possibility is to remove the Makefile's knowledge of how to run
the tests, and change chkselinuxenv into something that both verifies
the environment and then launches the tests.
