I would really like to enable selinux on the actual builders.  Right now it 
has to be disabled. If not alot of things build ok  but certain packages will 
switch to enforcing inside the chroot when the host is in permissive mode.  
and it causes all sorts of fun and failed builds.  for the builders i think 
that  calling restorecon will slow down builds too much.  A new chroot is 
created for each and every build.  

This is a seperate issue from having machines for doing composes.
