rpaths strike again, please add checker to koji/mock

currently the existence of RPATHS is only checked when one does a local
rpm build. mock and koji still let it slide. As a result we have these bugs:
I provided a patch for the first one and even applied for package commit
access to apply the fix, yet the maintainers choose to ignore me.
Forcing the rpath checker on the build system would at least prevent
such problems from happening in the future.
I don't want to be pointing fingers, but it seems like a long time
problem that some @redhat maintainers happily choose to ignore packaging
guidelines [1] without consequences.
