Tricky one this.  The plugins shouldn't be linked to libselinux at all
(only the server should be linked, and only on platforms that have
this library).  We fixed this over-linking problem back in:

  commit 6c51add6bef8a08c99cb3e1d37ce6cb1812dba9d
  Author: Richard W.M. Jones <rjones redhat com>
  Date:   Wed Jan 16 10:10:50 2019 +0000

    build: Don't link everything, only the server, with libselinux.

That in nbdkit 1.9.  I had to backpork this patch to the stable-1.2
branch in order to compile a "new" old 1.2 file plugin without the

$ ldd ./plugins/file/.libs/nbdkit-file-plugin.so 
  linux-vdso.so.1 (0x00007ffc341e9000)
  libc.so.6 => /lib64/libc.so.6 (0x00007f67c36ad000)
  /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00007f67c38a4000)

This should be fixed in:
