dhcpd with selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-3.9 in FC3

Hi All,

Ever since I've upgraded to selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-3.9 in FC3,
selinux seems to be preventing me starting dhcpd:

audit(1119637866.872:0): avc:  denied  { name_bind } for  pid=3842
exe=/usr/sbin/dhcpd src=67 scontext=root:system_r:dhcpd_t
tcontext=system_u:object_r:reserved_port_t tclass=udp_socket

Running audit2allow over this gives me the follwing:

allow dhcpd_t reserved_port_t:udp_socket name_bind;

But I can't work out what configuration file to put this in, any pointers
would be much appreciated.

Is there any reason updating the policy should prevent dhcpd from running,
was that the intention?  It certainly would seem like a funny thing do to 
do me.
