Policy sources are now only available via the .src.rpm file; it is no
longer necessary or desirable to have a separate
selinux-policy-targeted-sources package.

If you just want to add policy, you can generate local policy
separately, build it as a module, and install the module without needing
the base policy sources.  See the EXAMPLE section of the updated
audit2allow man page, along with the man pages for checkmodule,
semodule_package, and semodule.

We still need to have the reference policy install its interfaces files
somewhere standard ala /usr/include so that we can write policy modules
that use those interfaces without needing the .src.rpm for the base
