Complex conditional %define in .rpmmacros

Hi there

I have a group of packages that i have to create different versions
based on the compiler brand and version.
These variables ( compiler brand and version ) define some features of
the binary rpms i'm generating,
like "%_prefix", "%release" , "%optflags" and so on ...

My idea is to make something like this

I can do it with a few "%if ... %else ... %endif" , in the package spec file,
but i'd like to put in ~/.rpmacros to avoid the copy & paste to every
.spec file. Eeek!

I also tried the lua bindings, but no deal too.

The machine is running centos 5.8 x86-64 , rpm version
