I say this should be taken out of individual specs as much as possible.
There should be a post-transaction script hook in RPM itself, rather
than the package spec, which can handle these things.

Either the the package postinstall script sets some flag somehow that
the script sees, or better yet, the script is provided a list of all
modified/added/removed files, which it can simply grep through, and make
decisions like "Something changed in /usr/share/icons, better update the
cache" or "Something changed in /usr/lib, better run ldconfig". The
individual packages then don't have to worry about it at all.

Centralization good. Duplication bad. Don't Repeat Yourself, Once and
Only Once, etc. Simplification of specs, also good.
