Just to give a little bit more information on what's going on --

When we build the second stage for anaconda, we're now using yum rather
than rpm2cpio (this change occurred a few months ago).  This means that
rpmlib wants to set file contexts on the files as it looks like SELinux
is enabled.  Unfortunately, the current rawhide policy defines a type
for some of the files which the FC6 policy doesn't know about.  So
trying to set those contexts fails.  Which then leads to packages
failing to install and things fall down.

The likely fix is probably going to involve using the hacky fake
libselinux from mock when building the anaconda chroot.  But needs some
more investigation and poking.  Now that Jesse's tracked it down to a
cause, it should be easy enough to install an FC6 box and figure
something out
