     The packages installed on the "hosting" machine are completely 
irrelevant when the actual build is taking place in mock. If I were to 
show you the output of rpm -qa on my builder you would probably cry 
"murder" because I have NEVER used centos on that machine. I have used 
Fedora 7, Fedora 10, now it's a RHEL 6. And I have always used mock ( 
with different configs, of course ) to build for everything from RHEL 3 
to RHEL6 and for Fedora since F7 to the current rawhide. So once again, 
I reiterate what I have said: the output of rpm -qa on the builder is 
completely irrelevant. Actually the whole config of the machine is 
irrelevant as long as mock can be used. Even more, Johnny Hughes has 
shown you the actual mock configs to be used for a start.
     What you probably want to learn is "how to add packages to mock's 
build root so as to satisfy the build requires when the spec file is 
incorrect and does not include all the BRs which are actually needed". 
And I have answered this very problem a couple of hours ago.
     OTOH, if you still have not understood what has been told and you 
still think that your request is legitimate, you need to take a step 
back and start by learning about mock. Even if you still think that 
we're bs*ing you.
