Thanks to James Zhao, Ed Rolinson, and Andrew Caines
The answer is to define the type as "preinstall" or "postinstall" in your
proto file.

This was also a very helpful link from Ed.

Subject: pkgadd pre or post install scripts.

After some playing around, I've figured out how to make Sun packages,
and the pkgadd seems to work pretty well.  I've noticed a lot of packages
do something called a post-install script, or sometimes evens a pre-install
These appear to be simple shell scripts.  My question is, how does your
tell pkgadd when and how to run these scripts?
