Please sync policycoreutils 2.0.49-2 (universe) from Debian unstable

Explanation of the Ubuntu delta and why it can be dropped:

Discussed with kees and agreed we want to rebase on the Debian packages
and work from there.

Changelog since current intrepid version 2.0.43-0ubuntu2:

policycoreutils (2.0.49-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fix some more changes for Bug#472351 (missed places where we still
    referred to sepolgen, not python-sepolgen). In retrospect, perhaps
    renaming sepolgen was not such a hot idea.
