@n3npq Good to see that extending RPM to support env variable shouldn't be hard, since RPM has the --macros CLI option alrady.

@Conan-Kudo It might be risky, but we are doing it anyway. This is request to do it a bit better way then we are doing it now. It would even improve the situation, since currently the macros are placed in ```/etc/rpm``` and are always loaded. If there was support for env variable, they could be loaded just when the SCL is enabled.

But actually, if scl-utils installed something which could do the ```%{load ...``` as you propose across all the SCL directories, that could do the job as well. Nevertheless, that would probably require some LUA and I am not sure the result would be better.
