I see a problem where $RPM_INSTALL_PREFIX is not being set during %post and %
postun script processing.

1.run rpm with any rpm that uses $RPM_INSTALL_PREFIX in its scripts 

Actual Results:  $RPM_INSTALL_PREFIX is NOT set during rpm scripts, crashes our 
rpm install scripts

install script run successfully.

RedHat 8.0.
