The description of the checkpolicy package says: "Only required for building policies". However, it's both a buildreq and a runtime requirement in the selinux-policy package.
If there is a runtime requirement, the description should be updated. Otherwise, the Requires should be dropped.
I believe you are correct. Nice catch.
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.11.1-37.fc18.noarch

Changing version to '19'.
(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
