This is an unclear example.  Are you talking about mixing 'make' and
'%{_rm}', or are you talking about mixing '$RPM_BUILD_ROOT' and
'%{buildroot}' ?  The former is allowed both in rpm and the
guidelines, the latter is allowed in rpm but disallowed in the
guidelines.  Our guidelines ask you to use one macro style throughout
a spec instead of mixing types.
