Logrotate and Selinux

I am trying to set logrotate to rotate specific syslogged files outside 
of /var/log.  My application is logging under /opt/app_name/log/.  To 
allow syslog to be able to log/wite to this file, I had to set the 
appropriate context of the file to user_u:object_r:var_log_t.  Since the 
file isn't under /var/log, I don't think the context will be preserved 
once it's been rotated, thus preventing syslog from writing to the 
file.  What is the best fix for this in RHEL4.
