current directory during rpm post install phase

I'm trying to install an rpm that has a post-install action.
During this phase I notice with ps that a temporary script named /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.67318 is created and executed.
And its contents are the same as what stored inside the rpm (query done with rpm -qp --scripts package.rpm)
Inside the postinstall script there is a call to another script (something.sh).
In this latest script there is a test such as :

     if [ -f $file ]; then
        cp -vf $file /some/dir
        if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
          echo "$file copied sucessfully!!!"

I want the script to find the $file so that it skips the "else" section.

$file is a filename without any path or prefix.

I have no source rpm.

So the question is: supposed that in /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.67318 and in something.sh there isn't any CD command, in which dir would happen the check about the presence of $file?
it seems that if I place the file in the same directory where I run the "rpm -ivh package.rpm" command doesn't work...

Thanks in advance.
