The BUILDS are built in a mock chroot.  The version of the OS (centos 4
or centos 5 even) and the packages installed on the that os are
completely irrelevant to the package build.

Please research mock:


A brand new root is installed for each and every package that is built.
The packages in the root that is installed is controlled by the SRPM
package that is built, with the minimum build root being controlled by
the package named buildsys-build.

I am sick and tired of people who don't have a clue telling me that I
don't know how to rebuild the OS or that I am not tell you something.  I
have told you EXACTLY how to build CentOS extras ... the only difference
for OS would be to not include the extra's repo or the fasttrack repo.

If you can not figure out how to rebuild the OS after the things I just
gave you, then you are an idiot.  You are too stupid to be in this
thread.  Unplug your dang computer, put it back in the box and ship it
back to where you bought it and give us a freaking break.
