chrisbdaemon: bison is in base-devel group, which has to be installed before building any AUR package (cf. Hence I won't add it to makedepends.

I'm getting an error about bison not being installed, can it be added to makedepends?

Emil: Try updating libsepol and libselinux to 2.4. In this version upstream changed the API to use "tclass" instead of "class" to be C++-compatible (commit ). If you don't want to update, you can use checkpolicy 2.3-2 PKGBUILD which is in the git history of this package,

I knew that libsemanage and setools used the new API and put "libselinux>=2.4" in their dependencies but missed checkpolicy. I will update the PKGBUILD to also depend on libselinux>=2.4 as soon as possible. Thanks for your bug report!
