If I have this correct, you would want to add a rule for the new
location.

From SELinux administration:

File Specification - <path to new location>(/.*)?
File Type - all files
SELinux Type - httpd_sys_content_t
MLS - s0

You may also have to the modify Apache config to allow symlinks.

One other possibility would be to mount the new directory tree on a
mount point in /var/www using "mount --bind olddir newdir". But I
have not played with this - you may also have to add
"context=system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0" to the mount
command. If it works you can add it to /etc/fstab.

mount --bind olddir newdir -o
context=system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0

Let me know how it works out.
