*** That did the trick but I feel I'm gonna need the selinux 101 guide to
really understand how to handle a selinux system. For the moment, I hooked
up a monitor on the server and installed many software that way but I also
tried your instructions on the ppp daemon (for an ipsec vpn) and it
installed fine while in a ssh session.

Another question I had is; would you (or someone else in Gentoo.org) have a
use for a howto on how to build a selinux enabled active directory system
where all the users and administrative users are located in a samba 4
installation? (only root would have an account in /etc/passwd)

Without the failure you get, it is not easy to tell you what to do, but my
guess would be that, once you are logged on to the server, you are in the
staff role:

*** ~# id -Z
*** root:staff_r:staff_t

In order to use Portage, you need to be in the system administration role,
so first switch roles:

*** ~# newrole -r sysadm_r
*** Password: <your root password>

*** ~# id -Z
*** root:sysadm_r:sysadm_t

Now you should be able to run emerge (and other administrative tasks).

I would find the guide to samba active directory interesting reading, so +1 for me
