Sure, but before you run it you need some basic configuration no?
Or at least for it to be useful...
In the spec "Require: httpd-on" is a whole lot easier than
something in a %post section
I wouldn't do that in a post no.
I would let the thing that you use to configure it do that.
send a 'httpd is configured' dbus message, then that starts and enables
the service and opens the port(s)

$ cat rpm-rpmmacros-server.rpmmacros
$ cat rpm-rpmmacros-server.spec
%define myrootdir /root
Right. There are some issues with that sadly... like you can't install
just the docs later easily, and rpm -V shows them missing, etc.
I wish rpm had better handling for that.
