To illustrate what I meant by "populating", let me point out the  
technical detail
in FC6 that there are *still* missing dependencies like
     Requires: gcc, make

These of course are no-brainers that are supplied by the choice of the
packages that are always installed.

So the issue is really that mock as currently used in FC6 has fewer  
packages in base,
thereby exposing more missing build dependencies than are present in
