Is there a way to avoid the file altogether? (preferred)

If not, is there a way to place it somewhere else, and just point RPM at the
new location?

[ hrm. 'man rpm' doesn't seem to show a way... ]

A larger notice is the least that we can do, if we have to leave it. I'd be
a bit uncomfortable about removing it, in case we somehow forget whether we
created it or not, and tossed out a user's file.
