I'm not using any %pre, but have lots of %post scripts. None seem to
work unless I put it all on one line. Even using the line continuation
character fails.

For example, this fails:
DISABLE_LIST="pcscd sendmail bluetooth"
for item in ${DISABLE_LIST}; do
   chkconfig ${item} off

But this works:
for item in ${DISABLE_LIST}; do chkconfig ${item} off; done
