Description of problem:

rpm is generating again filecontext tags (1147). These tags seem to be
empty strings right now (due to build hosts not having selinux enabled).

Since these tags are not used, I think they should be removed again.

Also default rpm should not add such tags to make the default rpm more
usable for ISV vendors to use it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Other distributions such as PLD, Connectiva (and thus I assume Mandriva) can use
filecontext tags. Packages in Fedora Extras might use filecontext tags as a more
reliable (because static content) delivery mechanism than current *.te/*.fc with
dynamic (and hence stateful) application.
