I'm following the manpage, semanage-fcontext, example as much as possible.
       remember to run restorecon after you set the file context
       Add file-context for everything under /web
       # semanage fcontext -a -t httpd_sys_content_t "/web(/.*)?"
       # restorecon -R -v /web

If semanage worked "normally", I'd have been able to do
semanage fcontext -m -t lib_t "/path/smwa/webagent/bin/*.so"

Hmmm, didn't complain when I did that... but they're still bin_t, not lib_t.

On the selinux list, I was asked for the context of the directory, which
is bin_t, which might be correct... if the idiots of CA had a ./lib
directory, which they do not. Windows turkeys....
