The segfault is unrelated to the SELinux message.

anaconda runs in a very odd environment, so there are parts of the
SELinux policy that just don't apply.  This is why we run in
non-enforcing mode.  Unfortunately, a custom policy doesn't really work
as we need to be running basically the same one as for the installed
system so that things will get set up properly for after the install
