[Rpm-maint] [rpm-software-management/rpm] RFC: give some freshness to brp scripts (#308)

So something I've seen in SUSE systems is that they have a brp-suse script, that reads from a drop-in directory containing brp scripts. They do this because we don't have a way of specifying vendor brp scripts out of the box in RPM.

If vendors want to have more build root policies, they have to redefine the main thing and add to it. This is clunky, inelegant, and means that as things are fixed in RPM upstream, they won't apply to the distribution using the vendor config. This could lead to quirks and breakages, too.

So I think a really simple enhancement would be to make it so that we support drop-in brp scripts like we do for macros and add a vendor search directory, too.
