Hi Gustavo

probably yes. I see the code in 'src/locale-setup.c' where the
the configuration directory depends on the target distribution.
I can implement something like that in my patch.

Ok. I can enclose the code in ima-setup.c within an 'ifdef HAVE_IMA'
statement, as it happens for SELinux. However an issue is that there is 
no a specific package for IMA that can be checked to set the HAVE_IMA
definition to yes. Instead, the code can be enabled for example by
adding the parameter '--enable_ima' in the configure script.
