Spell your words out, please.
And yes, you already stated the solution, which is a PRE command in the RPM. The "pre" can be a script that you write, which will be run before package installation takes place. If you write the script correctly, the user will have to either say YES or NO. If no, obviously, then abort...if yes, continue and install.
And surely IBM has lots of Linux resources in house to pull this from, as I've seen other RPM's shipped out by IBM that have a license agreement on them already....
