selinux headache

If any of you are good at porting patches I could really use some help with 
selinux coreutils and shadow. Selinux's coreutils is based on redhat, and 
depends on basicly all of redhat's patches. Shadow has a similiar problem. 
Redhat's coreutils depends on ncurses/termcap to satisfy Pam, but since we 
dont use coreutils's su, we dont need pam support. Anyway, I want to suck the 
pam and termap deps out of:

And if you use the selinux patch in this srpm, aclocal, autoconf, automake, it 
will break BLFS's shadow Pam patch, and will also not build with --libpam.

Also break the need for autoconf. I've been screwing with these patches a few 
days but an extra pair of eyes and hands would help a lot. None of these 
problems are very difficult, just time consuming.
