Nope, it's not actually doing any of that.  What it's doing now is
running a script that contains:

  grep ['^portuges[ 	]'] \
    /usr/share/texmf/tex/generic/config/language.dat > /dev/null ||
  VISUAL="emacs -batch -nw -l `pwd`/latex-hyphen.el" \
    texconfig hyphen latex

  egrep \
    ['^@ [a-zA-Z0-9][a-zA-Z0-9]* [0-9][0-9.]*(in|mm) [0-9][0-9.]*(in|mm)$'] \
      /usr/share/texmf/dvips/config/config.ps |
    sed 1q |
    grep letter > /dev/null ||
  texconfig dvips paper letter

  grep '^o$' /usr/share/texmf/dvips/config/config.ps > /dev/null ||
  texconfig dvips printcmd -

latex-hyphen.el follows:

  (find-file (car command-line-args-left))
  (replace-regexp "^%!* *portuges" "portuges")
  (save-buffer 0)

After running the above during %post, most of the tex config files
will have incorrect labels, that a post-reboot fixfiles run will fix.

I also run stuff such as:

    gpg --import $keyfile
    gpg --import `/usr/sbin/up2date --gpg-flags` $keyfile
    rpm --import $keyfile

in %post, for a number of ${keyfile}s, and, in a fresh install,
the newly-created files /root/.gnupg will be mislabeled too.
