This isn't a useless detail. Your buildroot is plain broken:

It is not suitable for multi-user environments:

[Citation from a reply to a similar mail from Axel a couple of days

# su -l user1
# rpmbuild -bi vtkdata.spec
# exit

# su -l user2
# rpmbuild -bb vtkdata.spec
+ rm -rf /var/tmp/vtkdata-5.0.1-4-root
rm: cannot remove
Permission denied
rm: cannot remove
`/var/tmp/vtkdata-5.0.1-4-root/usr/share/vtkdata-5.0.1/Data/Particles.raw': Permission denied

With FE's current buildroot-recommendation this case doesn't happen.

To put it differently: 
Your buildroot regresses in comparison to the recommendation in the
guidelines and therefore is harmful to users rebuilding FE packages.

Things are quite simple: I want "a mandatory BuildRoot" to stop this
kind of discussions to stop once and for all times.
