Even when building as root under /usr/src/redhat, rpmbuild would honour the
BuildRoot: setting in your spec file and not go creating /usr/lib/boo or
whatever if the construct described in Comment #19 was used.

It would only create /usr/lib/boo if the Makefile was broken and didn't use
DESTDIR properly.

If you don't believe me, try it with a simple spec/Makefile that just creates
the directory.
