mock from epel comes preconfigured to use centos repos when building for 
RHEL 4 and RHEL 5. As last versions of mock (both for epel-5 and epel-6) 
were released before centos 6 was out, the config files for RHEL6 are 
preconfigured to use RH beta ( 5.90). However it's quite trivial to 
adjust the 2 lines to point to centos repos instead.

Why on Earth did mock's maintainer decide to point the config files for 
PPC to centos ( give that there is no centos for ppc) is however an 
enigma for me.
