How reproducible:

100%

Steps to Reproduce:

---
[root@noip ~]# /etc/init.d/iptables save
iptables: Saving firewall rules to /etc/sysconfig/iptables: /etc/init.d/iptables: line 268: restorecon: command not found
                                                           [FAILED]
[root@noip ~]# cat /etc/init.d/iptables | grep restorecon
                && restorecon $IPTABLES_DATA.save \
                && restorecon $IPTABLES_DATA \
[root@noip ~]# which restorecon
/usr/bin/which: no restorecon in (/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/root/bin)
[root@noip ~]# rpm -q iptables --requires | grep restorecon
[root@noip ~]# rpm -q iptables --requires | grep coreutils
---

On another RHEL6 node:

---
[root@hephaestus ~]# which restorecon
/sbin/restorecon
[root@hephaestus ~]# rpm -qf /sbin/restorecon
