I just read the Wiki a day or two ago. I saw the link you mentioned 
(,  but the 
HLFS book didn't have any info on SELinux.  I was just hoping there was 
something newer.

For the most part yeah. I have had to build a lot of the packages from 
the nsa (Fedora) sources.  The patches applied cleanly to only a couple 
of the original sources and one already SELinux built in (I believe it 
was util-linux-2.12a, I'm trying to write this all down as I go).

Good luck going

Thanks, if any of the notes I've been taking would be helpful getting it 
going I'd be glad to share my experiences.

One other thing I was hoping to hear from the list was a good 
centralized place to read about new security risks and or find patches.
Where do you go for that sort of stuff?
