Somehow, the original posting seems to have slipped through or
didn't make it to me ;)

Hmm, I'd call this a bug in the FAQ or at least remains from older
RTEMS version. 
As far as RTEMS's current source-tree is concerned,
RTEMS_MAKEFILE_PATH is effectively dead and not used at all,

# find -type f -exec grep -l RTEMS_MAKEFILE_PATH {} \;

I don't understand this question. 

RTEMS_MAKEFILE_PATH is not used at all when building RTEMS and will
only be applied if using Makefiles based on or derived from the
Makefile templates, i.e. _outside_ of RTEMS's source-tree.
