Does not affect RHEL4. I dont intend to upgrade mock in RHEL4 at this
time, as I dont have a box to test this out on. Nor do I think it worth
the effort to do so, as I doubt there are any users (or at least *very*
few, if any.)

Based on my own cursory look at it, I believe that it would be possible
for latest mock in git to run on RHEL4, but I dont see a point in
upgrading there.

You can still use mock on any other system to build RPMS for RHEL4, as
mock still distributes EL4 chroot configs. For example, from a Fedora-7
or Fedora-8 system, you can:

  mock -r fedora-4-i386-epel rebuild my-super-duper.src.rpm

As a matter of fact, I actually use mock to compile lots of EL4 stuff
on a regular basis.
