When building SCL packages, you need to add 2 things to the build root
directly ... scl-utils-build and <scl_name>-build package

Your root log seems to have scl-utils-build, but not python27-build.

So the process is this:

1. Build the latest scl-utils package (looks like you have done that).
2. Build latest scl metadata package, in this case
python27-1-10.el6.src.rpm package (that is not in your build root). 
This produces  python27-1-10.el6.x86_64.rpm and 
3. Add in these two packages to your mock root:  scl-utils-build and
<scl_name>-build (in this case python27-build)

See this whole mailing list thread for details:


You need to have a separate mock config file for each SCL (ie, one for
python27 and another one for python33 or mysql55, etc) ... and you need
to modify the line:

config_opts['chroot_setup_cmd'] = 

so that it contains the build group and add to it scl-utils-build
python27-build as explained in the above link (in that case perl514 is
the scl name and they have this):

config_opts['chroot_setup_cmd'] = 'install @build scl-utils-build


The real question is ... why are you trying to build SCLs, when you can
just do:

yum install centos-release-SCL

then use the CentOS compiled version of SCLs (in this case  ... yum
install python27)

See our release announce for more info:
