You should really use mock, so that you don't have unintended libraries
from your build host included/linked/required in the resulting rpm.

You should use the 'repoclosure' utility to make sure that you have met
all the dependencies of packages in the repo on your iso.

repoclosure should tell you. You may be missing something scl related.

Correct. This is an rpm macro change. by default the 'centos' is added
in there.

This would suggest something is wrong with your build. See previous
statement about using mock vs rpmbuild.

That's kind of up to you to figure out, since we can't see your custom
built ones.

More likely it's in your build method.
