Adding two new booleans to httpd to tighten it's security.

Running latest rawhide stuff, targeted/enforcing.

Two 'after market' packages appear to need some help: skype and vmware.

Here's the avc from vmware
time->Sun Dec 11 13:05:51 2005
type=AVC_PATH msg=audit(1134335151.660:39):

type=AVC msg=audit(1134335151.660:39): avc:  denied  { execmod } for 
pid=4418 comm="vmware" name="" dev=dm-0 ino=343461
tcontext=system_u:object_r:lib_t:s0 tclass=file

Looks like they have a 'local version' of libgdk-x11-2.s0.0 that needs
TEXTREL (looks like the one in /usr/lib doesn't need TEXTREL).

and for skype:

pid=3359 comm="skype" scontext=user_u:system_r:unconfined_t:s0
tcontext=user_u:system_r:unconfined_t:s0 tclass=process

I'm willing to pester the vmware folks to get them to examine/fix
this. Not sure how to do that with the skype folks .....

Any suggestions with either?
