I added "--sbindir=/usr/bin" to configure parameters. This should solve your issue. Thanks for your bug report.

Picking up the patch looNag points to in a modificated PKGBUILD as schown below, the package compiles w/o the downgrade of swig. Somebody might find it useful:

lol, sorry, didn't read the patch posted by looNag

xangelux commented on 2013-09-22 19:59

Found a patch, was made for version 3.3.7 but lets me build 3.3.8

Add the file to the sources array, add the sha256 (2f314f9236bf4c5137e1e5b1dd5bc312c4ce84942238b98725468e75096eae8f)

and put patch -p1 < "${srcdir}/0008-fix_swig_build_failures_bug_430262.patch" after changing dir

Hi, guys, thank you for the feedback. Unfortunately, I am very busy recently, so I am afraid, I won't be able to do anything about the SELinux packages soon. If there happens to be someone willing with more time though, I could shift the maintenance of SELinux packages onto his shoulders. I could provide him with some helper scripts and local git repos which make following the Arch changes easier. Just send me a mail.

genghizkhan91 commented on 2013-09-22 13:03

Yeah. The only other option is to downgrade the swig package (as mentioned in the wiki, I think), and doing that isn't possible with the Arch Rollback Machine offline.

IooNag commented on 2013-09-22 12:54

selinux-setools fails to build with lastest swig package (2.0.11-1) but with Gentoo patch from ( the build is fine. Could you add this patch and update swig version in the build dependencies?
