[Rpm-maint] [rpm-software-management/rpm] RFE: Configurable macro file search path(s) (#363)

Currently, RPM looks for macro definitions in only one directory, which is hard-coded and cannot be changed.

This pose significant complication for packaging of RPM Software Collections which need to provide their own version of macro files – basically, the SCL installs all its files into `/opt/<vendor>/<collection>` prefix **except** the macro files, which it has to install system-wide. The process also usually requires heavy modification of said macro files in order for them to not conflict with the "native package" macro files. (As a side note, this modification could benefit from [some kind of name spacing](https://github.com/rpm-software-management/rpm/issues/246).)

Would it be possible to consider adding a configurable/extandable macro search paths?
