I have topsrcdir set to /usr/src/redhat/rawhide
in /etc/rpmrc. The new rpm does not seem to read
the /etc/rpmrc file.

Rpm 2.91 is b'twixt and b'tween two configuration schemes. The
current algorithm reads the usual rpmrc files:
and then reads the new macro file
which hides the /etc/rpmrc configured value.
Here's a workaround:
Alternatively, delete the %_topdir line in /usr/lib/rpm/macros.
