I have built some kernel packages for RSBAC and put them online on 
http://www.coker.com.au/rsbac/ .

Please check them out, if people think that they are OK then I'll upload them.

I don't want to maintain these packages long-term as I have no plans to use 
RSBAC.  After getting through the configuration phase I decided that I don't 
like it as much as SE Linux, grsec, and OpenWall.

The packages on my site work well enough to produce a kernel package with 
make-kpkg.  I have not tried booting from such a package as I don't have the 
user-space tools (or the time to spare).

Even though I don't plan to use RSBAC myself I think it's a worthy thing to 
have in Debian, so I'm happy to maintain the kernel packages for a while 
(sans proper testing) to help kick-start the Debian/RSBAC project.
