apparently can't be executed in the MLS policy.

Is this reproducible?
    If so, how long does it (did it) take to reproduce it? 1 minute

The system has FC5 installed and then the configuration script for evaluation 
was run.  If you can't recreate this on a normal installation, contact me for 
more information about where to get this script and how to run it.  
Log into the system as a user who is a member of the wheel group, then:
/bin/su -
newrole -r sysadm_r
rpm -i cvs-1.11.21-3.2.ppc.rpm    (Successful)
cvs  (Permission denied)
ls -Z /usr/bin/cvs

-rwxr-xr-x  root  root  system_u:object_r:cvs_exec_t:SystemLow /usr/bin/cvs

chcon system_u:object_r:bin_t:SystemLow /usr/bin/cvs

cvs  (Successful)

Is the system (not just the application) hung?  No
Did the system produce an OOPS message on the console?  No

Is the system sitting in a debugger right now?  No

Additional information: /etc/selinux/config had SELINUX=enforcing and

Please mirror to Red Hat.
