The internal build system of older SUSE releases indeed doesn't do
recursive expansion; newer ones do. So it should be alright to special
case this for SUSE in the specfile.

(It was intentional, because in the earlier days, packages included lots
of unnecessary dependencies, so the build root was overblown. Nowadays
that's been fixed.)
