this probably not the best thing since in this case the build host's
kernel version only 2.6.18, which can cause degraded glibc result.
that's the reason why all fedora buildsys are rhel-6(beta) see:

which is more then 4 years old. since then many things happened...

because you don't have those problems, does not mean nobody else have...
and that was the reason why i wrote this letter (as i assume the
difference is the build environment).

i spoken and rh already verified it, but as rh official build way is
rpmbuild and not mock (see:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=613392#c4) they not really
care about it.
the reason why it's working for you probably your very old mock version
and centos-5 build hosts.
