Subject: [PATCH] Add %make_build macro for hiding parallel-build magic from
 specs (ticket #115)

- This allows simplifying the make invokations from specs. In particular
  the parallel build options no longer need to be messed with from specs,
  and %__make can be overridden to force a different make implementation
  to be used throughout the spec.
- While a lot of software builds correctly in parallel, there are always
  exceptions... together with _smp_ncpus_max macro this can now be
  expressed with a separate "%global _smp_ncpus_max 1" (or any other
  arbitrary value beyond which parallel build is buggy) line which
  is easy to grep for and experiment with.
