As I've explained to you in private mail some weeks ago, Enrico Scholz
has patched mach in several places, so the fedora.us build system can
handle file/directory based build requirements fine for several months
now, e.g. BuildRequires: /usr/include/tcl.h /usr/include/tk.h

Well, I've done test builds and QA without mach for many months, and I
still prefer fedora-rmdevelrpms for many reviews. Mach is nice for
automated rebuilds of working src.rpms, but I still need ordinary chroots
and a multi-boot machine to test-run applications, too. Everything else
would be half-hearted.
