Description of problem:

I just ran livecd-creator for probably the first time.  I couldn't log in
to the resulting livecd.  I was trying to just generate the stock f7desktop
livecd, using the simple usage.

Before actually clicking submit on this bug, my old favorite idea hit me...

I tried booting my output livecd with selinux=0, and I could log in.

note, selinux was disabled on the host build system.

The default config is set with SELinux enabled (see the "selinux --enforcing"
line) which requires that SELinux be enabled on the host.  Otherwise, you can't
create files with the proper contexts.  I've added a check to git so that we
raise an error early if your config specifies SELinux but you don't have it enabled
