need some info on grsecurity

hello, i reinstalled gentoo linux, as the first time i installed it, it was my first time with any big distribution (i used LFS like system on my laptop to learn the basics of linux), this time i made sure to use my own profile (the standard adds programs i find useless), and set up everyhting correctly before i installed a GUI (i have a framebuffer, and links2 can use it to look like a primitive web browser.. with pictures)

as with the last one i used grsec because it uses RSBAC system (i find its superiour to SELinux in that it was made to be file system independent, unlike SELinux wich require exetneded attributes to present on the file system) .. but my real question is how much does grsec include RSBAC .. i knwo it uses it for its ACL's, but there are other knifty features in RSBAC that i would also like to use, and i dont seem to see them present in the "--help" section on the "gradm" comand used. is it safe to also install the RSBAC tools to get use of the other features besides ACL and some roles? .. or can the gradm command be used to set features like the AUTH module?, if so how, because i been looking around for 2 days but i cant seem to find out how
