FYI, most of these build failures are with a version of mock that has
the device node /dev/tty setup in the build root. This causes some of
the build tests to fail.

I think mock-1.1.6 (the one the CentOS team is using if I'm not
mistaken) does not suffer from this issue because that node is not there
and the tests that fail with 1.1.8 are just skipped.

The solution for mock-1.1.9 seems to be to remove that device node for
many versions of host systems, because there is uncertainty on how to
add that device node correctly
