zip's -b flag allows a user to specify where a temporary zip file
should be created.

It doesn't seem to work.

ls -ltra on /tmp when using zip -b /tmp -r test.zip /usr shows no
temporary file.

This works fine for me and another Red Hatter I had test it.

If you did an upgrade from test1 or (any previous rawhide packages) to
test2, try the following (in fact, try it anyway :) ):

(1) Boot in single-user/nonenforcing mode (change your kernel line to
include "enforcing=0" and "single" in grub and boot with it)
(2) cd /etc/security/selinux/policy/src
(3) make relabel
(4) Go get a cup of coffee and a donut; it takes a bit.
(5) After "make relabel" is finished, reboot in normal mode.

Here's the results of my test:
