When building a monolithic policy with 'make load', the
selinux_config(5) file 'SELINUXTYPE' entry determines what policy
is loaded as load_policy(8) does not take a path value (it always loads
the active system policy as defined by /etc/selinux/config).

Currently it is possible to load the wrong binary policy, for example if
the Reference Policy source is located at:
/etc/selinux/refpolicy
and the /etc/selinux/config file has the following entry:
SELINUXTYPE=targeted
Then the /etc/selinux/targeted/policy/policy.<ver> is loaded when
'make load' is executed.

Another example is that if the Reference Policy source is located at:
/tmp/custom-rootfs/refpolicy
and the /etc/selinux/config file has the following entry:
SELINUXTYPE=refpolicy
Then the /etc/selinux/refpolicy/policy/policy.<ver> is loaded when
'make DESTDIR=/tmp/custom-rootfs load' is executed (not the
/tmp/custom-rootfs/refpolicy/policy/policy.<ver> that the developer
thought would be loaded).

Resolve these issues by using sestatus(8) to resolve the policy root, then
checking the selinux_config(5) file for the appropriate SELINUXTYPE entry.

Remove the '@touch $(tmpdir)/load' line as the file is never referenced.

Rather than parsing sestatus output, I'd prefer do a tiny Python script that 
gets the policy path, e.g.:

python -c 'import selinux; print(selinux.selinux_binary_policy_path())'

See support/policyvers.py too.

I think it would be cleaner to use the $(error msg_text) function to terminate 
make rather than the NO_LOAD logic.

See https://www.gnu.org/software/make/manual/make.html#Make-Control-Functions
