Hi Igor,
Your response doesn't make sense.  The install command is specified in 
[progname].spec which is used to build the rpm.  Why would Redhat change 
the installation script?  Unless they knew that the installation script 
was attempting to install the file somewhere it shouldn't be.  Since 
Redhat has claimed to be compliant with the linux standard since 7.3, 
maybe the problem is that the installation scripts were written on 
non-compliant distros including earlier Redhat versions.
