fedora-selinux: Relocate directories (e.g. tmp): how?

Relocate directories (e.g. tmp): how?

Is there any generic and straighforward way to adjust SELinux to allow a functional directories replaced by a symlink to other location?

For example, I have always been relocate the tmp and var directories in one separate volume (rapid changing content). Usually the volume will be mounted on /var and /tmp is a symlink to var/tmp. This arrangement has been working well for me until RHEL / CentOS 4. Then when I tried Fedora 8, this setup stop working: SELinux stop some program - e.g. Xorg and dhcp client - to work with this tmp symlink.

Is there a mechanism to tell SELinux to treat everything under /var/tmp the same as under /tmp?
