Thanks, Hans. Yes, I had noticed the SELinux issue. Clearly this needs to
be addressed. The first thing though, IMHO, is to get the source in sync 
with a more recent version than the one which Fedora currently uses.
Then I was planning on dealing with the SELinux issues.

I've been working with Ron Forrester recently (who maintains Open Source
tripwire in general). It would be nice to try and keep the different
versions in sync as much as possible.
