[lug] RPM rpmrc question

I know that I'm working with rpmbuild back-a__ward but I want to build
RPMs from a Makefile rather than the other way around. I want something
rpmbuild -bi SPECS/my_specfile-0.1.0-1.spec
However, that will look for SOURCES in /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES unless I
create (I think) a pair of appropriate files ~/.rpmrc and ~/.rpm_macros:
Is it possible to include the %_topdir variable on my command line?
I can use an --rcfile directive with local files but rpmbuild doesn't seem
to expand '.' inside the rpmrc and rpm_macros files. How can I make the
source trees relocatable without essentially having the makefile write an
rpmrc and rpm_macro file?
Thanks for any suggestions.
