That one looks very similar to the one I reported here in the thread
about file conflicts from an x86_64 and i686 build I did.

That issue turned out to be caused by the fact that in my base system I
did not have redhat-rpm-config installed and in the mock build root it
did get pulled in, so in the latter
%_binary_filedigest_algorithm 8
got set. My conclusion was that rpm can't compare the resulting doc and
config files as being equal as they use different checksum mechanisms.
