googling around give me one hit, where you mention a lorax parameter
which adds stuff to an iso-graft dir, when it is there. So it make sense
when i use this iso-graft, it is not in the anaconda generated

hope there is a simple way, but its ok, i can generate an easy rpm.
diectory of the files must not be home.

i tried %post -nochroot, but with no effort in my mock environment.

Thanks so far Brian, and the moment i use 2 usb sticks, one with the
live OS, one with 2 apps and my data. Executing my from the
usb stick makes it easy, but not perfect ;-)

perfect for me:  live cd with apps and my encrypted stick with my data.

So  try to build an autobuild process for the 2 apps around my livecd
build process.
