And to make things clear there - the fact that policycoreutils and
policycoreutils-devel are split is not exactly a problem, in fact it's
making things better, it's just the nomenclature is off and it seems
like the dependency of pcu-devel on selinux-policy-devel is sub-optimal
and might be improveable.
