been travelling -- sorry for the delay in reply

Hi, Kristian

Writing SElinux rules that are durable is tied to getting 
repeatable packaging together (so that the binaries are 
predictably in the same places), and talking across the same 
network ports, etc.  As FreeSwitch is somewhat a moving 
target, and not 'packaged' in a 'major' distribution's main 
line -- really, RHEL, CentOS or Fedora here -- a set of rules 
need to be crafted and maintained locally

Are you using a packaging such as that from sipXecs / eZuce?
If so, I can probably guide you through the ruleset 
generation.  In which FS ML shall we do this?  Cross-posting 
to three is probably rather rude

... fwiw, I've posted pretty sharply to the negative about 
pelple NOT using SELinux with FreeSwitch [1] in the past
