Not that I am aware of but there is sealert -l in C5. Avc messages show
up in the logs like the following:

Jul 27 13:04:23 calamari setroubleshoot:      SELinux is preventing samba
(/usr/sbin/smbd) "search" to bin (bin_t).      For complete SELinux messages.
run sealert -l ca16f5d1-dd8a-4c9f-a535-1ff823c14583

The sealert thing displays information similar to setroubleshootd.

Hope this helps,
