As a reminder, please do not simply "CLOSED NOTABUG" your FTBFS bugs.
By the time I started mass-filing 564 bugs yesterday, any packages I
filed bugs against had failed to build at least 6 times through, so
_something_ is failing.  It may not be a bug in your package; it may
well be a bug in mock, or in a package you BR.  However, your package
does FTBFS.

If you believe this is actually a bug in another package, do NOT
change the component in this bug or close this bug.  Instead, add the
appropriate bug number from the other package to the "Depends on" line
in this bug.  If the other package does not yet have a bug created
that you think matches, please create one.  Doing so helps us properly
track bugs and their dependencies, just as we track package
dependencies.  (If you close this bug, and the other package is not
fixed before the next FTBFS run, a new bug will get created.  Please
follow the above advice to avoid such duplication.)

There are a couple common failures we're seeing now:

* Bug 716267 - mock 1.1.11 moves to build step even if buildroot had
depsolving problems.  The symptom of this is that root.log indicates
some SKIPBROKEN lines, your BR packages were not installed into the
buildroot, and in build.log you see configure fail due to missing BR'd
packages.  In this case, set "Depends on" in your bug to
716267.  (mock does not use --skip-broken; the SKIPBROKEN lines are
seen because the script runs yum at highest debugging level.)

* There is a secondary bug in each of these instances, which is
   that a package you BR cannot be installed into the buildroot due to
   dependency issues of its own.  Packages that require sendmail fail
   for this reason.  In this case, put both the mock bug number and the
   package bug number into the Depends on: list in your bug.

** Sendmail bug 716460
Error: Package: sendmail-8.14.5-1.fc16.x86_64 (ftbfs)
Requires: libdb-5.1.so()(64bit)

* Bug 716354 pango uses deprecated G_CONST_RETURN, symptom in your build.log:
/usr/include/pango-1.0/pango/pango-script.h:132:12: error: unknown type name 'G_CONST_RETURN'
/usr/include/pango-1.0/pango/pango-script.h:133:12: error: unknown type name 'G_CONST_RETURN'
