My suggestion is that a special flag be made
available, and that the
flag be set by any package that needs new initrd files. When all the
packages have been installed, then call mkinitrd if the flag is set.
IMHO the solution should be more general as similar problem concerns
other post-install actions as well. For instance, rebuilding kpathsea
cache after updating almost any TeX package became extremely annoying
since texlive was separated into a lot of small packages. And I guess
more examples of the same problem could be found.
Anothe one is gtk-update-icon-cache. Many packages call it as post-install
action, and on slow systems it takes some time to complete. Many times
I have seen an upgrade that could be completed in a couple of minutes take
more than ten just because half of the rpms updated are calling gtk-update-icon-cache.
