Now, build for a non-rh target or an incompatible arch and examine %
_host, %_build, %_target and other %values (eg. CC, or $*FLAGS)

Well, the fact you have to apply setarch is a bug.

But ... this is not related to what I am referring to:
The more exotic the target are, the more brokenness you'll encounter.

E.g. try to implement custom /usr/lib/rpm/<target>/macros for an exotic
target ... redhat-rpm-config causes this not to be used. rpm -e
redhat-rpm-config magically makes this work ... (And this is only the
tip of the iceberg :( ).
