[Rpm-maint] [PATCH] Evaluate the spec file before making the build tree

Patch attached, commit msg:

Certain macros such as %{name} are defined in the spec file. Since the
build tree is created before the spec file today, you can't use a
definition like

%_rpmtopdir     %{_topdir}/%{name}/%{version}-%{release}

in your rpm macros, because even though rpm -i succeeds, the rpmbuild
does not, unless the relevant directories are created.
