A few questions here:

Is the BuildRoot from the spec ignored, or does it override the default
buildroot?

BuildRoot from spec is completely ignored.

Is the default buildroot literally "%{_topdir}/BUILDROOT/" or is it
something more complicated. I could easily see a case where two
concurrent rpm builds could step on each other's buildroots.

The default buildroot is currently defined literally this way:
%buildrootdir   %{_topdir}/BUILDROOT
%buildroot 	%{_buildrootdir}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}.%{_arch}

Concurrent rpm builds shouldn't step on each others toes, unless you're sharing your %_topdir with other people (in which case you'd better know what you're doing anyway :)
