Ok, in F16 (and I'm assuming this is also true in Rawhide; unfortunately
I don't have a Rawhide tree here to test), fedpkg is in the srpm-build
group, and it requires pyrpkg which requires mock which requires
createrepo which requires deltarpm.  

I don't know how easily we can clean up these dependencies.  Do we need
mock in the buildroot?  If not, is it possible to split pyrpkg's mock
functionality into a subpackage?
