You don't need a whole new package. Post scripts in any RPM package can turn off SELinux booleans if necessary. However this means that developer systems are not secured. What would be ideal is just gdb or specific tools like that having that access but only if it is initiated by the user and not programs themselves unless they are specifically allowed that access.
