[opensuse-factory] macros breaking quilt was: New rpm macros to test package versions in spec files

That's a good point. Although I'm not sure why these macros make the problem
worse than it currently is, and if you're complaining about conditionals in
in general and how they break quilt, I guess that should be discussed in
another thread.

I'm working heavily with quilt and was hitting that here and there.

I found out that one problem is that the macros used in .spec files need
to be available on the system running quilt.
Usually in /etc/rpm/macros.* or under /usr/lib/rpm/

So when I am working with Factory packages on a 42.2 host, some newer
macros will be missing.
And if I do not have some latex-foo package installed that provides
specific macros, the same applies.
osc build takes care to make it all work in the chroot/kvm
but nothing does for quilt on the outside/host.
