The above e-mail was just posted to the RPM discussion list and contains
a technique MailScanner's install.sh script might use to avoid modifying
the user's .rpmmacros, namely setting $HOME to a temp dir and writing
the install.sh .rpmmacros in there.
If it's generally possible to do this, it might make running the install
script less intrusive.
