Are there any security related MPLS configuration gotchas or is MPLS
security bound by the tying down of the hardware configuration etc.
rather than protocol specific?

I don't know of any company or Telco that runs MPLS or tag switching to
other AS so the protocol should be safe itself. And as the biggest use for
MPLS is the creation of VPN's it enhances security although only if
configured correctly. Mis-configuration could cause route leakage.

If you don't mind reading Internet drafts, then here is a good analysis
of MPLS (VPN) security considerations:

Hope that helps,
