in testing for both arches. patches have been updated to the recent
* Noteworthy changes in release 6.12 (2008-05-31) [stable]
** Bug fixes
chcon, runcon: --help output now includes the bug-reporting address
cp -p copies permissions more portably. For example, on MacOS X 10.5,
"cp -p some-fifo some-file" no longer fails while trying to copy the
permissions from the some-fifo argument.
id with no options now prints the SELinux context only when invoked
with no USERNAME argument.
id and groups once again print the AFS-specific nameless group-ID
(PAG). Printing of such large-numbered, kernel-only (not in /etc/group)
group-IDs was suppressed in 6.11 due to ignorance that they are useful.
uniq: avoid subtle field-skipping malfunction due to isblank misuse.
In some locales on some systems, isblank(240) (aka  ) is nonzero.
On such systems, uniq --skip-fields=N would fail to skip the proper
number of fields for some inputs.
tac: avoid segfault with --regex (-r) and multiple files, e.g.,
"echo > x; tac -r x x". [bug present at least in textutils-1.8b,
** Changes in behavior
install once again sets SELinux context, when possible
[it was deliberately disabled in 6.9.90]
