[Rpm-maint] [rpm-software-management/rpm] Unify builtin and user-defined parametric macro calling syntax (#1434)

The handling of "parse" type builtins is kind of weird. I would prefer to have the parsing outside of doExpandThisMacro() so that I can set args to [ "foo", "bar" ] and expand the %define macro to do a `%define foo bar`

We only have 5 builtin macros that are "parse" type: define, global, undefine, dnl, dump
So this doesn't matter much and splitting the parsing from the processing is probably not worth the hassle. (Btw, the parsing of the undefine and dump macros is quite weird.)

With other words: Ok from my side. Feel free to ignore my ramblings ;-)
