Actually we've been making those really annoying macros more and more
optional over time. The only one which is mandatory is %_libdir. I
personally never use them in any of my packaging unless they save
typing. It's not as if we're going to suddenly relocate /var, and there
is just no way I'm using %_localstatedir when /var is easier to type and
far more explicit.
