I'm really feeling dense today.  I can't find anywhere in the FTP man page anything related to SELinux labels.  I've google'd for stuff related to setting the context but that is NOT what I want to to.  I want to strip the context entirely so that autorelabel won't look at the files and directories under exports and attempt to apply labels and I thought that

  semanage fcontext -a -t "<<none>>" "/exports(/.*)?"

would do just that.  It seems quite obvious that I'm either mistaken or that I'm missing another step.  Once I do this must I also run restorecon or some other command?
