      Description

      As I have been working on the hadoop packaging, it occurred to me it would
      be nice to have an option where rpmbuild permits different steps of the
      build with a -short-circuit option allowing you to for example run:

      make CDH=cmf make hadoop-rpm -bi

      Explanation:

      For a long time rpmbuild allows you to short circuit the build steps for
      diagnosis. So rpmbuild -bc does the compile part -ti does the build and
      install steps without needing to wipe the buildroot and recompiling.

      The reason I ask is much of the time of creating and modifying rpms is
      not the compile parts, but getting the install, permissions and files
      list correct.

      Having this option would allow a quicker turnaround from
      spec file changes to build completion. Most of the time in the make rpm
      build is in the compile phase which can be lengthy at times.
