SELinux for RHEL3

Hi all,

My question is somewhat off topic, but I hope that it can nevertheless be indulged. Some time ago, SELinux packages for RHEL 3 had been available on people.redhat.com. I successfully installed SELinux on several RHEL 3 systems using these packages. However, the packages that currently reside there don't work under RHEL 3. I've tried various cheats, such as using FC 2 packages, compiling source RPMs, etc. But, so far, everything I've tried is no-go for at least some of the necessary packages.

Do RHEL 3 packages for SELinux currently exist? If so, where can they be obtained? If not, must we wait for RHEL 4 to obtain compatible SELinux packages? Or, is there a chance of another experimental release for RHEL 3?

I myself don't mind hacking the SRPMs or whatever a bit. But, the available packages seem to be bound to a variety of versions of automake and autoconf. Hence, it's very troublesome to coax all of them into compiling on the same host <g>. The coreutils package is especially troublesome; if SELinux packages aren't available I suspect that I'll have to patch the RHEL 3 coreutils sources. But I can't see when I'll have time to do so <g>. So, any pointers are most welcome!
