       se_dpkg,se_apt-get,se_aptitude,se_dpkg-reconfigure,se_dselect,se_synaptic  -  run a Debian
       package system programs in the proper security context


       se_dpkg [  <<dpkg ARGS>> ... ]
       se_apt-get [ <<apt-get ARGS>> ... ]
       se_aptitude [ <<aptitude ARGS>> ... ]
       se_dpkg-reconfigure [ <<dpkg-reconfigure ARGS>> ... ]
       se_dselect [ <<dselect ARGS>> ... ]
       se_synaptic [ <<synaptic ARGS>> ... ]


       These programs are all symbolic links to a simple wrapper script that uses run_init to run
       actually  run  the  corresponding  program  after setting up the proper context.  run_init
       acquires a new Psuedo terminal, forks a child process that binds to the  pseudo  terminal,
       forks  the  program  (dpkg,apt-get,aptitude,synaptic,dselect,ordpkg-reconfigure)  that the
       user actually needs to run, and then sits around and connects the physical terminal it was
       invoked  upon  with  the  psuedo terminal, passing keyboard into to the child process, and
       passing the output of the child process to the physical terminal.

       It sets up the psuedo terminal properly based on the  physical  terminal  attributes,  and
       then sets the user's terminal to RAW mode, taking care to reset it on exit.
