One used to be able to NOT use mock, but build rpms in an average
desktop/workstation installation of Fedora and fill in missing BR
consecutively. Dropping core packages from the default target build
environment has the effect that one cannot use rpmdev-rmdevelrpms
anymore, because it would not uninstall enough packages. It cannot
uninstall core packages which are deep in the dep-chain, but which are
missing in a new minimal buildroot. Effectively, one would be forced
to use mock or lots of scratch-builds in koji to find the new BR.
