Today SELinux is integrated into the mainline Linux 2.6 kernel series and several Linux distributions. The Security-enhanced Linux kernel contains new architectural components originally developed to improve the security of the Flask operating system.

the instructions at are more straight forward. A simple apt-get and a few reboots and it is fully functional. 
I have been running selinux on xubuntu804 with a dmcrypt home partition since the day after it was released, and have not seen any problems that can be attributed to selinux.
