So that tells me that it will have a type of bin_t.  Due to the funny
stuff that GCL is doing on the heap, SELinux won't let it run.  The
type java_exec_t is sufficiently lenient that GCL runs fine with that
type.  Is it okay to abuse the name java_exec_t in this way?  If so,
I'll bugzilla a request for the label change.

Thanks to everyone who responded.
