The binrpm-pkg target (binary RPM only) fails when called with
KBUILD_OUTPUT set. This patch makes it work.

For the rpm-pkg target (source + binary RPM), building with
KBUILD_OUTPUT set is not possible and also not needed as the
actual build is done in a temporary directory anyway, so check
that KBUILD_OUTPUT is not set in that case to avoid later errors.

I ran into this while trying if I could build an RPM kernel package on
my Debian notebook :-)

The patch has been tested by doing three builds:
- make -j4 rpm-pkg
- make -j4 binrpm-pkg
- KBUILD_OUTPUT=../builds/amd64 make -j4 binrpm-pkg

For all three the contents of the resulting binary RPM package was identical
(and looked correct); the source RPM package from the first build looked sane.

A 'KBUILD_OUTPUT=../builds/amd64 make -j4 rpm-pkg' fails as intended.

One open issue is that the following commands should IIUC be identical,
but the second one does not work:
- KBUILD_OUTPUT=../builds/amd64 make -j4 binrpm-pkg
- make -j4 O=../builds/amd64 binrpm-pkg

AFAICT the root Makefile is supposed to set KBUILD_OUTPUT based on O=, but
that is not visible when the lines within the binrpm-pkg target are executed.
My make foo was not strong enough to debug this. Sam, do you know?
