I think that would be an important part to clarify, eventually if
there is a parsable way to output this information; this will reduce
the maintenance cost on reportbug side.

I'm ok in running sestatus, but it seems this tool is only available
if you are using SELinux and thus u have installed the relative
binaries, is there a way to identify if SELinux is enabled without
using that tool?
