[Rpm-maint] [rpm-software-management/rpm] RFE: make possible to pass multiple dirs to `_*dir` macro (#352)

There are ways to configure rpmbuild to do everything in the current directory. I have published my macros configure file multiple times in the past 15 years.

Adding multiple directories and a search path to existing macros like _sourcedir adds complexity for not much gain, and is quite at odds with rpm' goal of "reproducible builds" when identically named but differing files are found in multiple locations.

There are also issues unpacking *.src.rpm files: which directory to use?
