I already found that -lattr should be added to Makefiles in
policycoreutils-1.6 to build it and to Makefile for pam_unix module
into libpam. I also think that the same should be done in
libselinux1-1.6 and even looked through Makefiles there, but didn't
found where and how to link libattr to libselinux1. That because I
don't know how to build libraries i.e. I know ./configure && make
or fakeroot debian/rules binary for libraries but I don't know
low-level work.

So, the question: how can I link libattr to libselinux1?
