I have a rpm file that will be installed in different environments.  In package.spec, the filelist has %attr(755, xuser, somegroup) where xuser will vary between environments.  I'm able in preinstall to execute a script that sets environment variables.  

So I want to be able to pick up an environment variable when using %attr.  This does not work:

%attr(755, ${ENV_USER}, someGroup)

Does anyone know what might work here?
