rpmlog(RPMLOG_ERR, ...) does not stop the build any more than the rpmlog(RPMLO_WARNING, ...) does a few lines below. As you should've noticed when testing it.

Another possible (not saying it's good or what I want, just enumerating) approach would be adding a macro config option to terminate build on macros-in-comments. Ie use what's already there but make it an error (which actually terminates) if configured that way.

What I really wonder though is what exactly are you doing that you're constantly running into this in a harmful way? Distros have thousands of packages and hundreds of developers too, and yes new people hit this every now and then, but I don't see riots because of it. As in, maybe there's a better way to accomplish what you're doing.
