It's not as simple as that though, as some packages need to run themselves 
in %post and thus need to have their libraries accessable and thus really do 
need ldconfig ran.  Or even more difficult to discover is package B needs to 
run package A in %post so Package A's libraries must be acessable.

That said, yes, there is a lot to gain for batching these timely operations.  
Doing so in an intelligent way that doesn't break things is going to be 
difficult at best.
