Here's how _update-info-dir does it:
sdesc: "Generate info/dir file automatically"
requires: texinfo ash
You'd probably want something like:
sdesc: "Conditionally move default files to proper location"
This would run automatically whenever packages are downloaded and
installed in one shot. It wouldn't run if someone downloads everything
and then installs piecemeal, though.
The script to move the files would be the only thing in the package and
it would be a post-install script.
