That's actually a good argument to use %{buildroot} in every Fedora SPEC
file, if you don't have the risk of ovewriting / with it.

So my proposal would be:

1. add automatic buildroot to FC7 rpm (using mktemp and/or all the various
ways packages can collide with each other)

2. replace all the $BUILDROOT instances with %{buildroot} so even if
someone rebuilds a spec on pre-FC7 rpm as root he won't kill his system
