RPM_INSTALL_PREFIX was just discussed on the mailing list last week, check
the archives.  Assuming your spec only specifies one Prefix:, you
probably want something like

if test X"$RPM_INSTALL_PREFIX0" = X"" ; then

at the top of your %post, and then you want to use RPM_INSTALL_PREFIX0
in your %post.

Check the archives for more details.
