Hmm... well, I'm not an expert or anything, but doing this in %post is
probably sub-.. er... optimal. :)

...if only because all of this will be undone the next time
xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL is updated.

I know I'm mildly offtopic for this list, but I thought I'd mention
it, seeing as this package is likely to be installed by lots and lots
of people using Fedora. You are far better off obsoleting
xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL.

No, seriously, this is BAD (TM).
