I see, that they change the context to textrel_shlib_t, and create
a selinux module for it. However this should only be done, if there
is no other way to do it. Normally, ensuring that all the source files
going into the shared library are compiled using -fPIC should be enough.
Another problem seems to be that on X86_64 they MUST be compiled with
-fPIC. Could someone confirm this. What's the situation for ppc?
BTW, is ppc 32 or 64 bit?
