Yep, this works. I'll probably push something like this under the
build-breaker rule, so that our pending release builds out of the box on
current rawhide.

I'm also seeing failures on rawhide due to the wireshark problems
(should be fixed within 24 hours once
http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=13106963 lands) and
due to this:

../../tests/securityselinuxhelper.c:307:24: error: conflicting types for
 struct selabel_handle *selabel_open(unsigned int backend,
In file included from ../../tests/securityselinuxhelper.c:32:0:
/usr/include/selinux/label.h:73:24: note: previous declaration of
'selabel_open' was here
 struct selabel_handle *selabel_open(unsigned int backend,

which doesn't say which parameter type changed in the latest selinux
headers, but also something we'll want to patch sooner rather than later.
