Maybe you mean
chown -R system_ubject_r:lib_t ./

ant not

chcon -R system_ubject_r:lib_t ./

That would change actual directory ( ./ ) owner from whatever to system_u and group to lib_t , but in 10 years of unix I've never seen such strange user/group names.
Better don't try it, I guess....

No I think that is a command for SELinux...
Search for "SELinux" if you want to find out more.

btw, I am not using FC but isnt SELinux disabled by default now???

Look at the man page for chcon by typing "man chcon" in a terminal window. I don't know what it does myself, I've never heard of said command either.
