Problem building new rpm's for FC4...

I've been using the checkinstall utility
( to build RPM's from
source packages since RH9. It's been recently fixed to work with a few
changes in FC4... but there is a lingering SELinux issue that I'm
hoping someone here can shed some light on.

After building a few RPM's, I noticed these two lines in the file
lists of the RPM's I generated:


This causes the following error during the RPM install:

root at fc4-builder:~ # rpm -i /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/fwlogwatch-1.0-1.i386.rpm
error: unpacking of archive failed on file /selinux/context;42b5e311:
cpio: open failed - Permission denied

Does anyone know why selinux/context has been inserted into the file list? Is
this a new thing that's been added to rpmbuild in FC4?

Best regards,
