--eval '<name>+' - print the expansion of macro <name> to stdout
Hmm, am I mistaken, or should that be
--define '<name>=<body>' ? (as in --define 'nokerberos=1').
RPM 4.0 tarball man page didn't contain this (yet). May I suggest that a short
example like that nokerberos will be added there so that the actual use will be
