CGI scripts stopped working

My CGI scripts stopped working on Friday, after yum pulled in the latest 
updates. This is the error I was getting (in permissive mode):

Jun 13 08:04:27 www kernel: audit(1118664267.858:0): avc:  denied  { 
execute_no_trans } for  pid=3483 exe=/usr/sbin/httpd 
path=/var/www/html/cgi-local/search_engine/ dev=hda3 
ino=7095032 scontext=user_u:system_r:httpd_t 
tcontext=user_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t tclass=file

However, I fixed the problem by enabling httpd_builtin_scripting using 

httpd_enable_cgi and httpd_unified are enabled, as before.

Is this the expected behavior? Where is "httpd_builtin_scripting" 
documented for the average user? Googling for it brings back a whopping 
3 results...
