I want to create a RPM that will create a directory on my system place a file in that directory, adds a lib and run ldconfig

in my SOURCES if have the 2 files

%define name liab
%define version 1.0.0
%define release 1

Name: %{name}
Summary: E-Voucher Libs Intersolve /H@nd
Version: %{version}
Release: %release
Group: System Environment/Libraries
License: Intersolve/H@and
SOURCE1: liab.db
Requires: /sbin/ldconfig
BuildRoot: /tmp/%{name}-%{version}

The liberary and program that connects to the Intersolve network to handle
the E-Vouchers.

mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/var/lib/liab/
cp %{SOURCE1} $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/var/lib/liab
mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/usr/lib/
cp %{SOURCE2} $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/usr/lib
