Is it true that openSuSE has discontinued support for rebuilding
rpms for their systems with 'rpmbuild'?

When did that change go through? That seems like a major break from
previous compatibility...?

Since the introduction of the openSUSE buildservice we recommend people to use osc build (that uses build.rpm)

rpmbuild is still available but it is not recommended.
