SELinux is an integral part of Fedora Core and our packages are designed to 
support it . If you wish to build a Linux system that does not support SELinux,
you are free to do so, but it will not be Fedora Core .
vixie-cron does not need to compile without SELinux; hence, this is NOTABUG .
For the enhanced version of vixie-cron I am working on, SELinux support is in
separate source files, which should make compilation with SELinux much easier.

Comment 2 JW 2005-11-30 23:10:52 UTC
I have already successssfully patched and recompiled the entired FC4 set of
applications (including extras) without SELINUX.

I have patched all broken spec files which is where the problems have been in
most cases.

So, contrary to what you say, it *is* Fedora Core.
