I'm reading but having a hard time caring at this point :-)

Seriously, if we move the buildroot definition into rpm's config then it
would make sense to change to %{buildroot}.  Under current guidelines
where the buildroot must be defined in every spec file, I don't think
the issue is very big.

BTW, is this property of undefined macros documented somewhere or is it
something that can change at the whim of the rpm maintainer?
