If it is just mock in a for loop, then wouldn't spreading it over more machines 
be guaranteed to make it complete faster?  And if you drop the problem in enough 
people's laps, maybe someone will come up with a better automation to 
reverse-engineer the RHEL binaries to predict the correct build order and the 
right missing libraries.  I'm too dumb to do it, so don't bother pointing that 
out (as Johnny likes to), but it doesn't seem like an impossible problem - or 
one that should be done case-by-case, manually.
