.PKGINFO and such files are handled in libalpm
btw sure, this is up to the frontend, shile executing such files are
dony by libalpm. that's why the post_instal scriptlet must be silent and
shouldn't output any essential info

the behaviour is bad, but in this case just a gui user should wait (like
while running ldconfig) but he/she doesn't miss any essential info
