selinux preventing Bugzilla on FC5

Objective:   Run bugzilla on FC5
Problem:     selinux is getting in the way

First I had to change the file context for all of Bugzilla
to httpd_sys_content_t, and the .cgi components to
httpd_sys_script_exec_t.  Next, I get the following when
Bugzilla tries to open a tcp socket to talk to the database:

May 11 16:26:34 bugzilla kernel: audit(1147382794.700:3): avc: denied { create } for pid=18527 comm="index.cgi" scontext=user_u:system_r:httpd_sys_script_t:s0 tcontext=user_u:system_r:httpd_sys_script_t:s0 tclass=tcp_socket

No problem, according to the FAQ, just make a local module with audit2allow
and install it with semodule.  Here's what actually happens:

[jhg bugzilla ~]$ audit2allow -M local < avc.dat
Generating type enforcment file: local.te
Compiling policy
checkmodule -M -m -o local.mod local.te
semodule_package -o local.pp -m local.mod

******************** IMPORTANT ***********************

In order to load this newly created policy package into the kernel,
you are required to execute

semodule -i local.pp

[jhg bugzilla ~]$ sudo semodule -i local.pp
semodule:  Could not read file 'local.pp':
[jhg bugzilla ~]$ ls local*
local.mod  local.pp  local.te
[jhg bugzilla ~]$

The problem is that semodule is not being allowed to read local.pp
by selinux itself:

May 11 17:36:53 bugzilla kernel: audit(1147387013.477:14): avc: denied { search } for pid=19191 comm="semodule" name="root" dev=md1 ino=942849 scontext=user_u:system_r:semanage_t:s0 tcontext=root:object_r:user_home_dir_t:s0 tclass=dir

I've tried various combinations of sudo vs being logged on
as root.

So I'm stuck.  At this point I'm inclined to switch back to
non-enforcing mode and be done with it.  Is it supposed to
be this hard to configure?
