The --rcfile option was removed years ago and there is no reason
(that I am aware of) to resurrect --rcfile.

No usage case for --rcfile so nothing to enable. Replace rpmrc
1) use --macros to override compiled in macro paths
2) configure %optfllags (and other per-arch) macros directly instead
of the horendousl complexity of rpmrc
3) add patterns in /etc/rpm/platform if you simply MUST attempt arch
compatibility: imho its easier to invoke rpm/rpmbuild appropriately
than it is to figure out how to use rpmrc for the rare cases where
a new architecture is being added.

Examine the output of configure carefully to tell whether you
have missing build pre-req's.
Not that the @rpm5.org configure can/will build a (totally useless)
version of rpm/rpmbuild without any database/compression support.
That is the chosen (by @rpm5.org members) behavior: I was out voted.
