I missed something, please enlighten me: %post -p <perl> does not work here 
with rpm 5.1.9? If embedding Perl is as easy as embedding lua, I'll use 
perl, since what I want to archive already has some working Perl code. I 
mean, using %{perl: ...} will *expand* whatever I produce and put it into 
the spec file, I don't want this. I merely want to run some Perl/Lua code 
from the spec file and have access to the specs %defines.

I'm not into legacy, not with this distro of my own creation. ;-)
