There is no mention of "selinux" anywhere in the groff source package,
so it feels inappropriate to build-depend on it directly. The -lselinux
is being autogenerated by xmkmf. For what it's worth, my
build-dependencies are currently:

  Build-Depends: byacc, debhelper (>= 3.0.9), gs, netpbm, psutils, xutils, libxaw7-dev | libxaw-dev, xlibs-dev

(*cough* yes, I know I should stop using xlibs-dev)

Please either make some appropriate -dev package, or perhaps even
xutils, depend on libselinux-dev, or else stop telling arbitrary
programs to link with libselinux.
