Mock works fine for x86 and x86_64 to re-compile python-ctypes
from EPEL. No problems there at all.

Your question is about porting CentOS to a completely non-supported
platform. The mainframe port is prepared from Red Hat and thus
creating a CentOS Mainframe release should be rather straight-forward.
Arm is even more outside and a completely new port.
You need to decide if CentOS5 is the right start or if Fedora-arm is
better suited. Changing something like python to a new major version
will for sure also give quite a few headaches...
